Honolulu

— 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.
Change things up with a short trip to Kailua Beach Park in Kailua (about 32 minutes away). Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.

Getting from Laie to Honolulu by car takes about 1.5 hours. Other options: take a bus. When traveling from Laie in December, plan for somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Honolulu: temperatures range from 82°F by day to 69°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 19th (Sun) to allow time for the flight back home.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
