Honolulu, Oahu — 5 nights

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: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's much more to do: trek along Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and get outside with Outdoor Activities.

To see reviews, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu vacation planning website.

Phoenix to Honolulu is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Phoenix to Honolulu. When traveling from Phoenix in June, plan for much colder days and little chillier nights in Honolulu: temperatures range from 86°F by day to 74°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) to allow time to fly to Koloa.

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.
