Honolulu — 5 nights

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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Pupukea Beach Park. Visit USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park). There's much more to do: browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary planner.

San Diego to Honolulu is an approximately 7-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST) is minus 2 hours. Traveling from San Diego in August, expect Honolulu to be a bit warmer, temps between 88°F and 75°F. On the 24th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can fly back home.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
