In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's lots more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace, don't miss a visit to Battleship Missouri Memorial, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

For maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Honolulu trip itinerary maker site .

Boston to Honolulu is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of ferry and flight. Traveling from Boston to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. In December, Honolulu is warmer than Boston - with highs of 82°F and lows of 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Kula.
