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.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Fri): don't miss a visit to The Byodo-In Temple and then take some stellar pictures from Nuuanu Pali Lookout. On the next day, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, then immerse yourself in nature at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Ala Moana Beach Park.

Plan my Honolulu trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Boston to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Boston to Honolulu. Traveling from Boston in February, things will get much hotter in Honolulu: highs are around 81°F and lows about 68°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) early enough to travel to Poipu.
