In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Take a break from the city and head to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Waikiki Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Swim with Dolphins in Waianae (about 52 minutes away). And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, explore the gorgeous colors at Pele's Chair, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center.

To find photos, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip itinerary builder .

Chicago to Honolulu is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -4 hour difference. Traveling from Chicago in June, expect a bit warmer with lows of 74°F in Honolulu. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can go by car to Kahuku.

Kahuku is a census-designated place (CDP) in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu, County of Honolulu, Hawaii, United States. On the 1st (Mon), explore the activities along Waimea Bay, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Sunset Beach Park, and then take a stroll around Polynesian Cultural Center. Here are some ideas for day two: kick back and relax at Turtle Bay Beach and then identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

For photos, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Kahuku online journey planner .

You can drive from Honolulu to Kahuku in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Honolulu in June, with highs in Kahuku at 80°F and lows at 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
