Honolulu, Oahu

— 20 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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lanikai Beach and Shark Diving. Family-friendly places like Koko Crater Railway Trail and Photography Tours will thrill your kids. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Pillboxes), Waimanalo (Kaiona Beach Park, Waimanalo Beach, &more) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sharks Cove, trek along Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, explore the activities along Waimea Bay, and enjoy the sand and surf at Kuhio Beach.

To see more things to do, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Honolulu online trip itinerary maker.

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.
