In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Kailua to see Kailua Beach Park about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach.

To find where to stay, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu visit planning site.

Getting from Lahaina to Honolulu by flight takes about 3.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of ferry and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight. September in Honolulu sees daily highs of 88°F and lows of 76°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
