Honolulu, Oahu

— 8 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.
Explore hidden gems such as Helicopter Tours and Swim with Dolphins. Step out of Honolulu to go to Kapolei and see Ko Olina Lagoons, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, make a trip to Waikiki Beach Walk, and appreciate the views at Nu’uanu Pali.

For ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu itinerary planning app.

Columbus to Honolulu is an approximately 12-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Traveling from Columbus in November, things will get warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 84°F and lows about 72°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Tue) so you can catch the flight 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.
