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.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park, stroll through Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Honolulu holiday planner.

Houston to Honolulu is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Houston to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. In May, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Wed) so you can fly to Lahaina.

Crown Jewel of Maui

Start off your visit on the 6th (Thu): observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, then walk around Lahaina Banyan Court, then see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and finally kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

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.
