Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, have unforgettable encounters with a shark diving experience, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To see photos, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, use the Honolulu itinerary maker .

Kalispell to Honolulu is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Kalispell to Honolulu. Expect a bit warmer weather when traveling from Kalispell in June: highs in Honolulu hover around 86°F, while lows dip to 74°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
