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 these side-trips from Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center.

To see where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu online day trip planner .

Asheville to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer evenings in Honolulu when traveling from Asheville in July, with lows around 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) so you can travel to Lahaina.
