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.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial.

For ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip itinerary planner.

Tampa to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. When traveling from Tampa in June, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Honolulu: temperatures range from 86°F by day to 74°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel to Kapaa.

Noted for its low-key beaches, Kapaa is a small town with a high concentration of tourist-oriented hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kapaa: Poipu (Spouting Horn & Poipu Beach Park), Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Eleele) and Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea). There's much more to do: admire the majestic nature at Na Pali Coast State Park, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kauai's Hindu Monastery.
