In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, nature, beaches, museums, and adventure. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, appreciate the extensive heritage of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu planner

Washington DC to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of subway, bus, and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Washington DC in December, expect Honolulu to be much hotter, temps between 82°F and 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
