Honolulu, Oahu

— 7 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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Laie (Malaekahana State Recreation Area & Polynesian Cultural Center), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, examine the collection at Bishop Museum, and stroll through Lanikai Beach.

To see reviews, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu tour itinerary maker website.

San Francisco to Honolulu is an approximately 8-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. Traveling from San Francisco in December, expect Honolulu to be warmer, temps between 32°C and 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Tue) so you can travel back home.

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.
