In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
On the 22nd (Sun), stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail. Keep things going the next day: contemplate the long history of Queen Emma Summer Palace, then kick back and relax at Lanikai Beach, then make a trip to Byodo-In Temple, and finally explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Honolulu fast, fun, and easy.

Denver to Honolulu is an approximately 9-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Denver to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. In December, Honolulu is much hotter than Denver - with highs of 82°F and lows of 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Volcano.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 25th (Wed), take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then get impressive views of Kīlauea, and finally examine the collection at Jagger Museum.
