In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Here are some ideas for day two: stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail, then kick back and relax at Lanikai Beach, and then stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

For where to stay, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu trip planner.

Newark to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Traveling from Newark to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. In December, Honolulu is warmer than Newark - with highs of 82°F and lows of 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Tue) so you can travel to Lahaina.
