Honolulu

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: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To find other places to visit, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu holiday planner.

Denver to Honolulu is an approximately 9-hour flight. Traveling from Denver to Honolulu, you'll gain 3 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Denver in March; daily highs in Honolulu reach 81°F and lows reach 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Fri) so you can travel to Poipu.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
