Honolulu, Oahu

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've added Manoa Falls, Bishop Museum, Iolani Palace, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at USS Arizona Memorial and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument. Step out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Lanikai Beach, which is approximately 34 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take a memorable drive along Makapu'u Point.

To find reviews, maps, ratings, and tourist information, use the Honolulu driving holiday planner.

Traveling by flight from Hilo to Honolulu takes 3 hours. In February, daytime highs in Honolulu are 81°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) early enough to travel back 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.
