In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Kailua to see Kailua Beach Park about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: hike along Diamond Head State Monument, enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To find photos, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu road trip planning site.

Chattanooga to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Chattanooga in June since evenings lows in Honolulu dip to 74°F. You'll have a few hours on the 17th (Thu) to wrap things up before traveling to Waimea.

Waimea

Waimea ©
A vast agricultural land with one of the largest cattle ranches in the United States, Waimea embraces its ranching roots.
Venture out of the city with trips to Waikoloa (Dolphin Quest & Blue Hawaiian Helicopters - Waikoloa), Queen's Bath (in Princeville) and Kohala Zipline (in Hawi). There's lots more to do: admire the majestic nature at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, appreciate the views at Pololu Valley Lookout, get out in the countryside at Parker Ranch, and take some stellar pictures from Waipiʻo Valley Lookout.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Waimea road trip planning app.

Getting from Honolulu to Waimea by flight takes about 4.5 hours. While traveling from Honolulu, expect slightly colder days and much colder nights in Waimea, ranging from highs of 71°F to lows of 48°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
