Honolulu

— 7 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.
You'll explore and learn at USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park), Shark Diving (in Haleiwa) and Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei). The adventure continues: trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Byodo-In Temple, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and get great views at Puu Ualakaa State Park.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary planner.

Kansas City to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from Kansas City to Honolulu. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Kansas City in January, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 67°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
