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 Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and browse the exhibits of USS Arizona Memorial.

Sault Ste. Marie to Honolulu is an approximately 15-hour flight. Traveling from Sault Ste. Marie to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Sault Ste. Marie in November: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 84°F and lows are around 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Volcano.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hilo (Akaka Falls State Park & Liliuokalani Gardens). Spend the 20th (Wed) among the fascinating landscape of Kulanaokuaiki Campground. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kilauea Iki Trailhead, see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, take a memorable drive along Devastation Trail, and head outdoors with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook.
