In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Visiting Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Kailua Beach Park will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Koko Crater Trail and Lanikai Beach. Take a break from Honolulu with a short trip to Waimea Bay in Haleiwa, about 54 minutes away. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of The Byodo-In Temple, admire the majestic nature at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

To see where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu online tour itinerary planner .

In January, plan for daily highs up to 80°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
