Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Koko Crater Railway Trail, Laniakea Beach, Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum, and other attractions you added. Get outdoors at Kapiolani Regional Park and Sharks Cove. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Alex's Aquatic Adventures and Banzai Pipeline. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Ehukai Beach Park (in Pupukea) and Waimea Valley (in Haleiwa). There's lots more to do: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace.

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu online trip itinerary builder.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Honolulu. In September, Honolulu is somewhat warmer than Toronto - with highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) early enough to travel to Kapaa.

Volcano

Volcano ©
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Kalapana as well as Kapoho Tide Pools. Liliuokalani Gardens and Pacific Tsunami Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Punalu‘U Beach and Kīlauea.
