Honolulu — 5 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.
Step out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Kailua Beach Park, which is approximately 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at USS Arizona Memorial, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, hike along Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach.

Denver to Honolulu is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. Traveling from Denver to Honolulu, you'll gain 3 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Denver in November, expect Honolulu to be much hotter, temps between 84°F and 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Laie.

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.
