In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, admire the masterpieces at Honolulu Museum of Art, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum.

To see more things to do and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu online trip itinerary planner .

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Honolulu. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Toronto in January; daily highs in Honolulu reach 32°C and lows reach 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) to allow time to travel to Lahaina.
