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 a sense of the local culture at USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, walk around Kualoa Regional Park, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

To see photos, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary maker website.

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.
