Honolulu, Oahu

— 6 nights

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.
Family-friendly places like Diamond Head State Monument and Lanikai Beach will thrill your kids. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Banzai Pipeline and Sunset Beach Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Waimanalo (Waimanalo Beach & Bellows Field Beach Park), Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Island Treasures (in Kailua). There's lots more to do: trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail, stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, see the world from above with Air Tours, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

To see where to stay, photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip planner.

Louisville to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Louisville in March, expect Honolulu to be much warmer, temps between 81°F and 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Thu) to allow time 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.
