Honolulu, Oahu

— 4 nights

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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. Popular historic sites such as Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific are in your itinerary. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, trek along Diamond Head State Monument, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take some stellar pictures from Puu Ualakaa State Park.

For ratings, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Honolulu online road trip planner.

Newark to Honolulu is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Newark to Honolulu. Traveling from Newark in March, expect Honolulu to be much hotter, temps between 81°F and 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Lahaina.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Heart of the Kona Coast

Kick off your visit on the 29th (Sun): take in the spiritual surroundings of Mokuaikaua Church, then fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and then kick back and relax at Kahaluu Beach.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
