Honolulu — 3 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.
Take a break from the city and head to Diamond Head State Monument and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Waianae to see Swim with Dolphins about 56 minutes away. The adventure continues: explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To find traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Honolulu online travel route planner.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
