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 Iolani Palace will appeal to museum buffs. Head to Ala Moana Center and 88 Teesfor plenty of shopping. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and stop by Hilo Hattie's.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly. Traveling from New York City to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference.
