Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Swim with Dolphins and Kailua Beach Park. Family-friendly places like Lanikai Beach and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve will thrill your kids. The adventure continues: appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and take in the spiritual surroundings of The Byodo-In Temple.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu travel itinerary planner.

Calgary, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Calgary to Honolulu is minus 3 hours. Traveling from Calgary in September, expect Honolulu to be much hotter, temps between 36°C and 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Mon) early enough to drive to Haleiwa.

Haleiwa is a North Shore community and census-designated place (CDP) in the Waialua District of the island of Oahu, City and County of Honolulu. On the 18th (Mon), enjoy the sand and surf at Waimea Bay, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Sunset Beach Park, then meet some fierce fish with a shark diving experience, and finally stop by North Shore Marketplace. Keep things going the next day: make a trip to North Shore, then admire the verdant scenery at Waimea Valley, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Laniakea Beach.

To see other places to visit, ratings, maps, and tourist information, go to the Haleiwa online itinerary creator.
