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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument.

To find ratings, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip website.

Sacramento to Honolulu is an approximately 7-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time is minus 2 hours. Traveling from Sacramento in January, expect Honolulu to be much hotter, temps between 81°F and 67°F. You'll have a few hours on the 14th (Fri) to wrap things up before traveling 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.
