Honolulu

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've added Hawaii Polo Club, Laniakea Beach, Waimea Bay, and other attractions to your itinerary.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu road trip planning website.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST), which is usually a -5 hour difference. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from New York City in September; daily highs in Honolulu reach °F and lows reach °F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 24th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel to Hilo.

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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Heavenly Hawaiian Kona Coffee Farm, Kona Brewing Company and Mountain Thunder Coffee Plantation. It doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm.

For where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Kailua-Kona road trip website.

You can drive from Hilo to Kailua-Kona in 2 hours. Another option is to take a bus. In September, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F. You will have some time to spend on the 30th (Wed) before leaving for Wailea.
