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 find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

To find reviews, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu day trip app .

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from New York City in June; daily highs in Honolulu reach 86°F and lows reach 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) early enough to travel to Wailuku.
