In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve has been added to your itinerary. Kids will appreciate attractions like Diamond Head State Monument and Kailua Beach Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Lanikai Pillboxes & Lanikai Beach), Haleiwa (Waimea Valley, Waimea Bay, & more) and Dole Plantation (in Wahiawa). The adventure continues: don't miss a visit to Battleship Missouri Memorial, take a memorable drive along Makapu'u Point, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and enjoy the sand and surf at Kualoa Regional Park.

Chicago to Honolulu is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -4 hour difference. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from Chicago in May; daily highs in Honolulu reach 84°F and lows reach 71°F. On the 1st (Sat), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
