In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Shangri La and Queen Emma Summer Palace. Your inner history buff will appreciate Iolani Palace and Battleship Missouri Memorial. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei), Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park) and Banzai Pipeline (in Pupukea). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Ala Moana Beach Park, contemplate the waterfront views at Waimea Bay, and walk around Kapiolani Regional Park.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. In March, Honolulu is much hotter than New York City - with highs of 81°F and lows of 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) to allow time to travel to Lahaina.
