In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Family-friendly places like Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park will thrill your kids. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial.

To see where to stay and other tourist information, use the Honolulu trip itinerary builder website .

Charlotte to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus, taxi, and flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Charlotte to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. In December, Honolulu is much hotter than Charlotte - with highs of 82°F and lows of 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) so you can travel to Charlotte.
