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.
Bring the kids along to USS Arizona Memorial and Kailua Beach Park. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To see photos, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu sightseeing planner.

Philadelphia to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. When traveling from Philadelphia in October, plan for a bit warmer days in Honolulu, with highs around 87°F, while nights are much hotter with lows around 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) early enough 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.
