In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
We've included these beaches for you: Kailua Beach Park and Waikiki Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Manoa Falls. Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, stroll through Diamond Head State Monument, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and make a trip to Battleship Missouri Memorial.

For traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu tour itinerary maker website .

Philadelphia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of train and flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or fly. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Philadelphia to Honolulu. In July, daytime highs in Honolulu are 88°F, while nighttime lows are 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
