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 a short trip to Kailua Beach Park in Kailua (about 32 minutes away). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find out how to plan a trip to Honolulu, use our trip itinerary maker.

Des Moines to Honolulu is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -4 hour difference. Traveling from Des Moines in February, expect Honolulu to be warmer, temps between 81°F and 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to drive to Laie.
