Honolulu

— 6 nights

Big Pineapple

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 get in some beach time at Lanikai Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Do your shopping at Aloha Stadium Swap Meet & Marketplace and Ala Moana Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Lanikai Pillboxes (in Kailua). And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, tour the pleasant surroundings at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and examine the collection at Bishop Museum.

To see more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu day trip site.

Columbus to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Columbus to Honolulu. Traveling from Columbus in June, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Honolulu, with lows around 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) so you can drive to Laie.

Laie

— 4 nights
Laie is a census-designated place (CDP) located in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Laniakea Beach and Skydiving. Relax by the water at Sunset Beach Park and Sharks Cove. When in Laie, make a side trip to see Horseback Riding Tours in Waialua, approximately Waialua away. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Waimea Valley, make a trip to Opana Radar Site, kick back and relax at Kualoa Regional Park, and explore the activities along Waimea Bay.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Laie trip itinerary website.

Drive from Honolulu to Laie in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In June, Laie is slightly colder than Honolulu - with highs of 80°F and lows of 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
