Honolulu — 7 nights

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, and appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial.

To find where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip planner.

You can drive from Laie to Honolulu in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In August in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 28°C at night. You'll have a few hours on the 11th (Thu) to wrap things up before traveling home.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
