Honolulu, Oahu

— 6 nights

Big Pineapple

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 enjoy Waikiki Beach and USS Arizona Memorial. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pupukea (Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument & Ehukai Beach Park). There's lots more to do: stroll through Diamond Head State Monument, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, pause for some photo ops at King Kamehameha Statue, and contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in December, things will get much hotter in Honolulu: highs are around 82°F and lows about 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
