Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Visit Kailua Beach Park and Waikiki Beach for some beach relaxation. USS Arizona Memorial and Honolulu Museum of Art are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kapiolani Regional Park, pause for some photo ops at King Kamehameha Statue, get great views at Nuuanu Pali Lookout, and take an in-depth tour of Iolani Palace.

To find maps, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu vacation trip planner.

Boston to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Boston to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Boston in October: high temperatures in Honolulu hover around 87°F and lows are around 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Tue) early enough to travel to Hauula.
