In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Family-friendly places like Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head State Monument will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu online attractions planner .

Dallas to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 4 hours. When traveling from Dallas in June, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Honolulu: temperatures range from 86°F by day to 74°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Tue) early enough to travel to Kihei.
