Honolulu ©
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 find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at USS Arizona Memorial, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.

To see maps, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip builder app.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Honolulu. Expect warmer temperatures when traveling from Toronto in April; daily highs in Honolulu reach °C and lows reach °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
