Honolulu, Oahu

— 4 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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Pupukea Beach Park, Sunset Beach Park, &more). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Diamond Head State Monument, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, and walk around Ala Moana Beach Park.

To find where to stay, maps, photos, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu attractions planner.

Atlanta to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Atlanta in May, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Honolulu, with lows around 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Lihue.

Hawaii travel guide

4.4
The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
