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 Makapuu Lighthouse Trail will thrill your kids. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Lanikai Beach and Bellows Field Beach Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Island Treasures (in Kailua), Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, explore the gorgeous colors at Banzai Pipeline, cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, and enjoy the sand and surf at Sunset Beach Park.

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.
