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 find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa). There's lots more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, pause for some photo ops at King Kamehameha Statue, steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Honolulu trip simple and quick.

Washington DC to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour combination of subway, bus, and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Washington DC to Honolulu is minus 5 hours. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Washington DC in March: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 81°F and lows are around 68°F. On the 16th (Mon), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Wailea.
