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 Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center.

For reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu road trip planner .

Pasco to Honolulu is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. When traveling from Pasco in September, plan for a bit warmer days in Honolulu, with highs around 88°F, while nights are much warmer with lows around 76°F. You'll have a few hours on the 21st (Sat) to wrap things up before traveling to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Big Island Buggy as well as Helicopter Tours. On the 21st (Sat), see the world from above with a helicopter tour, then head outdoors with Big Island Buggy, and then contemplate the long history of Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park. Here are some ideas for day two: explore and take pictures at Saddle Road and then admire the majestic nature at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.
