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 (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, &more) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of USS Arizona Memorial, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

For other places to visit and other tourist information, use the Honolulu online tour planner.

Paducah to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. Traveling from Paducah to Honolulu, you'll gain 4 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Paducah in September, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in Honolulu, with lows of °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Lahaina.
