Honolulu

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.
Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 21st (Sun): find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, then explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, and then explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To find traveler tips, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu road trip planning site.

Oklahoma City to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -4 hour difference. Traveling from Oklahoma City in March, expect nights in Honolulu to be much warmer, around 68°F, while days are somewhat warmer, around 81°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) to allow time to travel to Poipu.

Poipu

Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Step out of the city life by going to Waimea Canyon State Park and Maha'ulepu Heritage Trail. Popular historic sites such as Kilohana and Lawai International Center are in your itinerary. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Poipu Beach Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn, explore the different monuments and memorials at Kauai Veteran's Cemetery, and revel in the low prices at Original Red Dirt Shirts.

To find reviews, maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Poipu itinerary planner.

Fly from Honolulu to Poipu in 3 hours. In March, plan for daily highs up to 78°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
