In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
To find more things to do, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu journey builder .

Los Angeles to Honolulu is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Los Angeles in July since evenings lows in Honolulu dip to 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Wed) so you can go by car to Kahuku.
