Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step off the beaten path and head to Ko Olina Lagoons and Kailua Beach Park. We've included these beaches for you: Lanikai Beach and Waikiki Beach. Take a break from Honolulu with a short trip to Byodo-In Temple in Kaneohe, about 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

Plan my Honolulu trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Spokane to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Spokane to Honolulu, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. In January, Honolulu is warmer than Spokane - with highs of 81°F and lows of 67°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Hanalei.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Start off your visit on the 27th (Sun): take in the exciting artwork at Volcano Garden Arts, take a memorable drive along Devastation Trail, then explore the striking landscape at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and finally examine the collection at Jagger Museum.
