Honolulu, Oahu

— 3 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kids will enjoy Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Take a break from Honolulu with a short trip to Waimea Bay in Haleiwa, about 54 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, browse the exhibits of USS Arizona Memorial, and stroll through Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

For traveler tips, maps, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu online route planner.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. Traveling from New York City to Honolulu, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New York City in May, things will get somewhat warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 84°F and lows about 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) to allow time to fly back home.

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.
