Honolulu — 9 nights

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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Waikiki Beach and USS Arizona Memorial. Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Ihilani Spa (in Kapolei). Next up on the itinerary: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see maps, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu online travel route planner.

Laie — 4 nights

Laie is a census-designated place (CDP) located in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. Bring the kids along to Waimea Bay and Shark Diving. Change things up with a short trip to Haleiwa Beach Park in Haleiwa (about 34 minutes away). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Ehukai Beach Park, experience rural life at Kahuku Farms, look for all kinds of wild species at Malaekahana State Recreation Area, and appreciate the history behind Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument.

To find reviews, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Laie trip itinerary planner.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
