Honolulu, Oahu

— 2 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.
On the 14th (Sat), explore the galleries of Iolani Palace, contemplate the long history of Queen Emma Summer Palace, then examine the collection at Bishop Museum, and finally soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers. Here are some ideas for day two: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, then admire the striking features of Shangri La, and then pause for some photo ops at Queen Liliuokalani Statue.

Plan a trip to Honolulu easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Newark to Honolulu is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference.

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.
