Honolulu, Oahu — 4 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, enjoy the sand and surf at Kailua Beach Park, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.

For where to stay, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu tour website.

Chicago to Honolulu is an approximately 11-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Chicago to Honolulu is minus 4 hours. Traveling from Chicago in January, expect Honolulu to be much hotter, temps between 81°F and 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Wed) early enough to fly to Koloa.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
