In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with a short trip to Kailua Beach Park in Kailua (about 32 minutes away). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To see traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Honolulu holiday app .

Newark to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Newark to Honolulu is minus 5 hours. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Newark in December, with highs in Honolulu at 82°F and lows at 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) to allow time to travel to Pupukea.
