Honolulu, Oahu — 2 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.
Explore hidden gems such as Swim with Dolphins and Bishop Museum. When in Honolulu, make a side trip to see Lanikai Beach in Kailua, approximately Kailua away. There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and wander the streets of Kaka'ako.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu attractions planner.

Tampa to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Tampa in February, things will get a bit warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 81°F and lows about 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) to allow enough time to fly to Koloa.

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.
