In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Shop till you drop at Polynesian Cultural Center and Ala Moana Center. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Waikiki Beach, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park.

Portland to Honolulu is an approximately 8-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. Traveling from Portland in November, things will get much hotter in Honolulu: highs are around 84°F and lows about 72°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Start off your visit on the 11th (Sun): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, read Kailua-Kona tour planner.

You can fly from Honolulu to Kailua-Kona in 4 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight, taxi, and bus; or do a combination of flight and bus. In November in Kailua-Kona, expect temperatures between 84°F during the day and 73°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 11th (Sun) to allow time for travel back home.
