Honolulu, Oahu

— 5 nights

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 Lanikai Beach. Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. There's lots more to do: explore and take pictures at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, get outside with Outdoor Activities, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, 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.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
