Honolulu, Oahu

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 Photography Tours and Lanikai Pillboxes. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Waimanalo Beach and Kuhio Beach. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Bellows Field Beach Park (in Waimanalo), Laniakea Beach (in Haleiwa) and Sharks Cove (in Pupukea). Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic natural features at Halona Blowhole, look for gifts at Shimazu Shave ice, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

To plan Honolulu vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Tallahassee to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Tallahassee to Honolulu.

Hawaii travel guide

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.
