Honolulu, Oahu

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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Take a break from Honolulu with a short trip to Lanikai Beach in Kailua, about 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, brush up on your military savvy at US Army Museum of Hawaii, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

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

Presque Isle to Honolulu is an approximately 19-hour flight. Traveling from Presque Isle to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Presque Isle in March, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 68°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) early enough to travel to Poipu.

Poipu ©
Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Discover out-of-the-way places like Koloa Zipline and Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail. Take a break from the city and head to Wailua Falls and Kauai Path. Take a break from Poipu with a short trip to Polihale State Park in Waimea, about 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Shipwreck Beach, experience rural life at Kauai Coffee Company, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and take the plunge with Skydive Kauai.

Crown Jewel of Maui

Change things up with a short trip to Kamaole Beach Park III in Kihei (about 44 minutes away). There's lots more to do: hike along Kapalua Coastal Trail, enjoy the sand and surf at Kapalua Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Napili Beach, and walk around D.T. Fleming Park.
