Honolulu, Oahu — 2 nights

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Waimea Valley and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Discover out-of-the-way places like Lanikai Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Step out of Honolulu with an excursion to Waimea Bay in Haleiwa--about 54 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and get outside with Outdoor Activities.

Find out how to plan Honolulu trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

Albuquerque to Honolulu is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from Albuquerque to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Albuquerque in July, Honolulu is somewhat warmer at night with lows of 75°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sun) early enough 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.
