In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park will appeal to museum buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Diamond Head State Monument. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa), Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, walk around Ehukai Beach Park, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Honolulu vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Washington DC to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour combination of subway, bus, and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. In May, Honolulu is somewhat warmer than Washington DC - with highs of 84°F and lows of 71°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
