Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Waikiki Beach and Waimea Bay. Kids will enjoy USS Arizona Memorial and Kailua Beach Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa), Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum, and kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park.

To find where to stay and more tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary planner.

You can fly from Lihue to Honolulu in 2.5 hours. Expect a daytime high around 82°F in December, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
