In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center.

For traveler tips, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary maker site .

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly.
