Honolulu, Oahu

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: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, &more). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu online travel planner.

Charleston to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Charleston in June since evenings lows in Honolulu dip to °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
