In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and stroll around Kapiolani Regional Park.

For other places to visit, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu trip planner.

San Francisco to Honolulu is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from San Francisco to Honolulu. When traveling from San Francisco in November, plan for a bit warmer days and much warmer nights in Honolulu: temperatures range from 84°F by day to 72°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
