Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Koko Crater Railway Trail and Byodo-In Temple. Step out of Honolulu with an excursion to Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie--about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find maps, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu trip itinerary planner .

Kalamazoo to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Traveling from Kalamazoo to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Kalamazoo, expect somewhat warmer days and much warmer nights in Honolulu, ranging from highs of 88°F to lows of 76°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Lihue.
