Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Koko Crater Railway Trail and Room Escape Games. Venture out of the city with trips to Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park). The adventure continues: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail.

For other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip itinerary planning site.

You can fly from Hanalei to Honolulu in 3.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in July, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) to allow time to travel to Lahaina.
