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 Lanikai Beach and Sunset Beach Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Koko Crater Railway Trail and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Haleiwa), Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei) and Sharks Cove (in Pupukea). Next up on the itinerary: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and admire the verdant scenery at Nu’uanu Pali.

Princeville is a 9,000acre, upscale, unincorporated, master-planned community of vacation homes and condos on the north shore of the island of Kauai in Kauai County, Hawaii. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Hanalei Beach and Tunnels Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Na Pali Coast State Park and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Princeville: Poipu (Shipwreck Beach & Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail) and Polihale State Park (in Waimea). There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Kalalau Trail, enjoy the sand and surf at Ke'e Beach, take in the dramatic scenery at Opaekaa Falls, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Christ Memorial Episcopal Church.
