Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Take a break from the city and head to Kailua Beach Park and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Get a sense of the local culture at USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Dole Plantation (in Wahiawa) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, get some jogging in at Ala Moana Beach Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kapiolani Regional Park, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip builder.

Pittsburgh to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from Pittsburgh in March, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel to Poipu.

Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. Step out of the city life by going to Waimea Canyon State Park and Spouting Horn. Get out of town with these interesting Poipu side-trips: Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Kapaa). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Poipu Beach Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Poipu Shopping Village, admire the sheer force of Opaekaa Falls, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.
