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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Do your shopping at Ala Moana Center and Don Quijote. Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Ko Hana Distillers (in Waipahu). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace.

Houston to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -4 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Houston in October since evenings lows in Honolulu dip to 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Tue) to allow enough time to 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.
