Honolulu, Oahu — 3 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.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Ehukai Beach Park (in Pupukea). There's lots more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

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.
