In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Kailua Beach Park and Waikiki Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Lanikai Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm and Farm Tour (in Kaneohe) and Bellows Field Beach Park (in Waimanalo). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Turtle Bay Beach, admire all the interesting features of Nuuanu Pali Lookout, identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and stroll through Sharks Cove.

To find traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu online trip builder .

Philadelphia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train, subway, bus, and flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Philadelphia in January, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
