In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. The adventure continues: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

For more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu trip builder tool .

Boston to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Boston to Honolulu. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Boston in December: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 82°F and lows are around 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
