Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Museum-lovers will appreciate Bishop Museum and USS Arizona Memorial. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Ko Olina Lagoons, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail.

To see ratings, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu road trip site .

Minneapolis to Honolulu is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from Minneapolis to Honolulu. Traveling from Minneapolis in June, expect Honolulu to be somewhat warmer, temps between 86°F and 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Hanalei.
