Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, pause for some photo ops at Queen Liliuokalani Statue, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu day trip planning tool.

Chicago to Honolulu is an approximately 12-hour flight. The time zone changes from Central Standard Time (CST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -4 hour difference. Traveling from Chicago in May, expect Honolulu to be a bit warmer, temps between 84°F and 71°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Wed) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Jack's Diving Locker as well as Captain Zodiac Raft Expeditions. On the 3rd (Wed), choose your vessel at Jack's Diving Locker, then experience rural life at Kona Coffee Living History Farm, then stroll through Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, and finally get close to the beloved marine mammals with Captain Zodiac Raft Expeditions. On your second day here, enjoy the sand and surf at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay), then contemplate the long history of Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, and then stroll through Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Kailua-Kona day trip planning app.

You can fly from Honolulu to Kailua-Kona in 4 hours. In June, daily temperatures in Kailua-Kona can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
