Honolulu, Oahu — 5 nights

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at USS Arizona Memorial, see the interesting displays at Bishop Museum, contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace, and admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument.

To find more things to do, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu holiday planner.

Kalamazoo to Honolulu is an approximately 15-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Kalamazoo in February, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 69°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Wed) so you can catch the flight to Kailua-Kona.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
