In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, don't miss a visit to Battleship Missouri Memorial, and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

For photos, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Honolulu trip planner.

Atlanta to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Atlanta to Honolulu. In August in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 88°F during the day and 75°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) so you can travel to Lahaina.
