Both California and Hawaii are great year-round destinations. The very best time of year to travel is from April to October with the peak travel season being from June to August. In Hawaii, temperatures are high throughout the year but never excessive, as humidity levels are manageable. There is a rainy season from December to March when the scenery is at its most lush and long, hot days break up the rainy spells.
