Honolulu

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.
For shopping fun, head to Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm and Farm Tour or Windward Mall. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Venture out of the city with trips to Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe), Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum, pause for some photo ops at Queen Liliuokalani Statue, hike along Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and pick up some local products at Saturday Farmer's Market KCC.

Nashville to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -4 hour difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Nashville in February, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 27th (Thu) to allow time for travel to Wailuku.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.
