Laie is a census-designated place (CDP) located in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. Step out of the city life by going to Sunset Beach Park and Ehukai Beach Park. Shop till you drop at Polynesian Cultural Center and Wys Galleries. Get out of town with these interesting Laie side-trips: Ko Hana Distillers (in Waipahu) and Haleiwa (Scuba & Snorkeling, Shark Diving, & more). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Turtle Bay Beach, appreciate the history behind Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, explore the activities along Waimea Bay, and admire all the interesting features of Banzai Pipeline.

For other places to visit, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Laie trip itinerary builder app .

Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Shop till you drop at Ala Moana Center and Don Quijote. Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, and see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum.

To see photos, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip planning site .

You can drive from Laie to Honolulu in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. When traveling from Laie in December, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Honolulu: temperatures range from 32°C by day to 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 11th (Wed) to allow time for travel back home.
