Honolulu

— 6 nights

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.
Visit Lanikai Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park for some beach relaxation. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kailua Beach Park and Ala Moana Beach Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo), Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kuhio Beach, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail, and examine the collection at Bishop Museum.

Washington DC to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Expect warmer temperatures when traveling from Washington DC in February; daily highs in Honolulu reach 81°F and lows reach 69°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can go by car to Kahuku.
