Honolulu, Oahu

— 4 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.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, wildlife, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, take a tour of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

For photos, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip itinerary builder website.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from New York City in October, things will get a bit warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 87°F and lows about 74°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel 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.
