Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get some historical perspective at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Byodo-In Temple. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Dolphin & Whale Watching. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Haleiwa (Waimea Valley & Sunset Beach Park). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, examine the collection at Bishop Museum, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

For reviews, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip site .

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. Traveling from Toronto in March, things will get warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 32°C and lows about 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sat) early enough to travel to Lahaina.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.

Get out of town with these interesting Volcano side-trips: Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu), Punalu‘U Beach (in Pahala) and Holei Sea Arch (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). Spend the 5th (Fri) among the fascinating landscape of Kulanaokuaiki Campground.
