Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Koko Crater Railway Trail. Explore hidden gems such as Kayaking & Canoeing and Kapiolani Regional Park. There's much more to do: contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, stroll through Diamond Head State Monument, see the vivid underwater world at Pele's Chair, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

For more things to do, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu road trip planner .

Getting from Hanalei to Honolulu by combination of taxi and flight takes about 3 hours. In August in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 88°F during the day and 75°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
