In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, wildlife, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: tour the pleasant surroundings at Diamond Head State Monument, take an in-depth tour of USS Arizona Memorial, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

To see where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu planning website.

New York City to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -5 hour difference. Plan for warmer temperatures traveling from New York City in January, with highs in Honolulu at 81°F and lows at 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
