In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To find traveler tips, photos, reviews, and tourist information, read our Honolulu road trip app .

Kansas City to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -4 hour difference. Traveling from Kansas City in December, things will get much warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 82°F and lows about 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can drive to Kahuku.

Kahuku is a census-designated place (CDP) in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu, County of Honolulu, Hawaii, United States. Get out of town with these interesting Kahuku side-trips: Ka'ena Point State Park (in Waianae) and Haleiwa (Haleiwa Beach Park, Shark Diving, & more). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Sunset Beach Park, get into the urban bustle at Polynesian Cultural Center, stroll through Turtle Bay Beach, and stroll around Pupukea Beach Park.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Kahuku trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

You can drive from Honolulu to Kahuku in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In December, Kahuku is a bit cooler than Honolulu - with highs of 76°F and lows of 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
