Honolulu, Oahu

— 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.
Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Sunset Beach Park, &more). There's still lots to do: admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To see reviews, photos, and more tourist information, read Honolulu trip itinerary builder site.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. In August, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach 88°F, while at night they dip to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Sat) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

— 1 night

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
On the 8th (Sun), experience rural life at Sunshower Farms, stroll through Kahaluu Beach, then get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, and finally take a stroll through Kailua Pier.

To plan Kailua-Kona vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

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.
