Traveler’s bucket lists often feature Hawaii, and for good reason. With its year-round warm weather and island vibes, anytime is the best time to visit this popular destination. The Archipelago has been attracting visitors for generations, long before its addition as the 50th American state in 1959. Its features, including golden-sand beaches, incredible coastlines, active volcanoes, cascading waterfalls, lush rainforests, historic sites, all-inclusive Hawaiian resorts, distinctive culture, and aloha spirit make it a year-round attraction.

Hawaii's uniqueness lies in its expanse of nearly 11,000 square miles made up of 132 islands, six of which welcome visitors: the Island of Hawaii, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, and Oahu. Inter-island flights and a ferry running between Maui and Lanai, which are only 9 miles apart, make traveling between the Hawaiian islands convenient. There are multiple airlines that fly to Hawaii, including Hawaiian Airlines, Mokulele Airlines, and Southwest Airlines.

The best time to visit Hawaii for a great deal is during the spring and fall shoulder seasons, provided you book a trip outside schools’ spring and fall breaks. Another time to consider visiting is after kids go back to school in the fall but before the holiday breaks. During these times, airfare is usually the cheapest, and you can find amazing deals from your favorite airlines.

Pro Tip: To get the best airfare, create airline price alerts that let you know when it’s the best time to book flights for your Hawaiian island escape. Skyscanner and tools like Google Flights’ price alerts can help you save. Traveling with a budget airline is another way to save money on your trip to the Aloha State.
