Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get outdoors at Koko Crater Railway Trail and Lanikai Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Kailua Beach Park and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kaneohe (Byodo-In Temple & Hamama Falls), Waimanalo (Makapu'u Beach, Bellows Field Beach Park, &more) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Kailua). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lanikai Pillboxes, kick back and relax at Ko Olina Lagoons, stroll around Kapiolani Regional Park, and head off the coast to Magic Island.

To see other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Honolulu road trip app.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Honolulu. In September, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach 88°F, while at night they dip to 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Thu) so you can drive to Haleiwa.
