Honolulu, Oahu

— 3 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You've now added Pearl Harbor Tours to your itinerary. Step out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Kailua Beach Park, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Honolulu online holiday planner.

Cincinnati to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also fly. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Cincinnati in July since evenings lows in Honolulu dip to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Poipu.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
