Step out of Honolulu with an excursion to Sunset Beach Park in Haleiwa--about 1h 05 min away. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, and explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial.

For maps, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu online travel route planner .

Nashville to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight.

In November, Honolulu is much hotter than Nashville - with highs of 84°F and lows of 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) early enough to travel to Kihei.
