best island to stay

Going to LA for 4 days then wanting to spend 10 days in Hawaii really do not know what island to stay on. We both like sight seeing and relaxing.

Well - you might want to repost on the general Hawaii forum if you haven't chosen an island yet - posting here looks like you have already decided on Maui. What thing are most important to you? Want city, nightlife & shopping? Quiet & rural? Will you rent a car? Each island is different - a good start would be to read the Summary of the islands on the Hawaii forum page. And then when you have selected an island, you may want to post on that specific island for help with lodging (listing your nightly budget), activities, etc. - good luck! :)

Welcome to TripAdvisor, vicky ~

Always count your nights when traveling - not your days.

There is no "best" Island. All are the "best." You need to do some reading and determine which Island/s is best for ... you. With 10 nights, you may want to visit two Islands.

Will you be renting a car in Hawaii? You will need one on any of the major Islands with the exception of the City of Honolulu on the Island of Oahu.

Please tell us when you are traveling ... and who is "we?" Spouse? Kids? Friends? Big group?

Pick up a copy of "Hawaii for Dummies," a highly-recommended travel guide that covers all the Islands. And get a good map of Hawaii as well.

And you are on a small sub-Forum for the Island of Maui. Post again, on the generic State of Hawaii Forum ... and include the information I asked for above.
