In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To plan Honolulu vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Charlotte to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus, taxi, and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Charlotte in December, things will get much hotter in Honolulu: highs are around 82°F and lows about 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Laie.
