Honolulu, Oahu — 4 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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Helicopter Tours and Shark Diving. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Ko Hana Distillers (in Waipahu). Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, don't miss a visit to North Shore, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Saint Augustine by-the-Sea.

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.
