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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Lanikai Beach and Ko Olina Lagoons. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Koko Crater Railway Trail and Kailua Beach Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae), Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Haleiwa (Shark Diving, Sunset Beach Park, &more). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, admire the majestic nature at Puu Ualakaa State Park, and visit Kaka'ako.

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.
