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 Haleiwa (Pupukea Beach Park, Sunset Beach Park, &more), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, examine the collection at Bishop Museum, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

To see photos, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip itinerary app.

Miami to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. In February in Honolulu, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Lahaina.
