In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sharks Cove and Koko Crater Railway Trail. Do some cultural sightseeing at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park) and Waimea Valley (in Haleiwa). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, enjoy the sand and surf at China Walls, get great views at Puu Ualakaa State Park, and choose your vessel at Sail Makani.

To see ratings, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu vacation planning app .

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Traveling from New York City in April, things will get much warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 83°F and lows about 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Volcano.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Get outdoors at Swim with Dolphins and Laupahoehoe Beach Park. Kealakekua Bay and Liliuokalani Gardens are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Volcano: Captain Cook (Kona Coffee Living History Farm & Rooster Farms), Akaka Falls State Park (in Hilo) and Hula Daddy Kona Coffee (in Holualoa). The adventure continues: get impressive views of Kīlauea, kick back and relax at Waialea Beach, relax in the rural setting at Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation, and take in the natural beauty of Steam Vents.

Do a combination of flight and bus from Honolulu to Volcano in 4.5 hours. In April, daily temperatures in Volcano can reach 81°F, while at night they dip to 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
