Honolulu

Honolulu ©
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: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and stroll through Waikiki Beach.

To find ratings, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu vacation builder site.

Miami to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Miami to Honolulu. Expect a daytime high around °F in February, and nighttime lows around °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
