In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step out of the city life by going to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Waikiki Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Venture out of the city with trips to Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, & more) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). And it doesn't end there: admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial, stroll through Turtle Bay Beach, and get into the urban bustle at Polynesian Cultural Center.

To find more things to do, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, read our Honolulu route planning app .

Minneapolis to Honolulu is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. Traveling from Minneapolis to Honolulu, you'll gain 4 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Minneapolis in July, Honolulu is a bit warmer at night with lows of 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
