Honolulu, Oahu

— 4 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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Helicopter Tours and Byodo-In Temple. Kids will enjoy Kapiolani Regional Park and North Shore. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku), Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei) and Haleiwa (Waimea Valley, Waimea Bay, &more). There's much more to do: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, appreciate the history behind King Kamehameha Statue, make a trip to Waikiki Beach Walk, and get engrossed in the history at Queen Emma Summer Palace.

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.
