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.
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: stroll through Waikiki Beach, steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and admire the landmark architecture of Shangri La.

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.
