In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Here are some ideas for day two: identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and then enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach.

To see reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu route site .

Roanoke to Honolulu is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight; or do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Roanoke to Honolulu. Plan for a bit warmer temperatures traveling from Roanoke in May, with highs in Honolulu at 84°F and lows at 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can travel to Volcano.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 21st (Tue), take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea, and finally see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum.

For other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Volcano trip itinerary planning app .
