In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Haleiwa Town Center & Sunset Beach Park), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of USS Arizona Memorial, stroll through Waikiki Beach, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument.

For traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Honolulu trip itinerary builder site .

Houston to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus, taxi, and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Houston to Honolulu is minus 4 hours. When traveling from Houston in January, plan for somewhat warmer days in Honolulu, with highs around 81°F, while nights are warmer with lows around 67°F.
