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 find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). The adventure continues: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, stroll through Waikiki Beach, and see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu driving holiday planning tool.

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. In August in Honolulu, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Lahaina.
