In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Polynesian Cultural Center and Ala Moana Center. Take a break from the city and head to Kailua Beach Park and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Lanikai Beach (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary builder .

Miami to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour combination of tram and flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 5 hours. January in Honolulu sees daily highs of 80°F and lows of 66°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
