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.
Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Queen Emma Summer Palace. Iolani Palace and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, walk around Ehukai Beach Park, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

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.
