Honolulu, Oahu

— 11 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.
Ward Entertainment Center has been added to your itinerary. Popular historic sites such as USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific are in your itinerary. Appreciate the collections at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park and Shangri La. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Ko Hana Distillers (in Waipahu), Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park) and Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae). There's lots more to do: browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, kick back and relax at Ala Moana Beach Park, appreciate the history behind King Kamehameha Statue, and stroll through Turtle Bay Beach.

To find ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip planner.

Iowa City to Honolulu is an approximately 12-hour combination of car and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Iowa City to Honolulu is minus 4 hours. Traveling from Iowa City in July, expect a bit warmer with lows of 28°C in Honolulu. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 14th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
