In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, use the Honolulu day trip tool .

Houston to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Houston to Honolulu, you'll gain 4 hours due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Houston, expect somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Honolulu, ranging from highs of 81°F to lows of 67°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can travel to Hilo.

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hilo: Kona Coffee Living History Farm (in Captain Cook), Kailua-Kona (Swim with Dolphins & Dolphin & Whale Watching) and Kilauea Iki Trailhead (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). The adventure continues: admire the sheer force of Akaka Falls State Park, stroll the grounds of Alae Cemetery, admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, and savor the flavors at Hilo Farmers Market.
