Honolulu

— 5 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.
When in Honolulu, make a side trip to see Kailua Beach Park in Kailua, approximately Kailua away. There's much more to do: stroll through Waikiki Beach, get engrossed in the history at Iolani Palace, steep yourself in history at Battleship Missouri Memorial, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.

For traveler tips, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu trip builder app.

Los Angeles to Honolulu is an approximately 7-hour flight. Traveling from Los Angeles to Honolulu, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Los Angeles in June, expect Honolulu to be somewhat warmer, temps between 86°F and 74°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Thu) so you can go by car to Laie.

Side Trip

Laie

— 3 nights
Laie is a census-designated place (CDP) located in the Koolauloa District on the island of Oahu in Honolulu County, Hawaii, United States. Start off your visit on the 11th (Fri): walk around Kualoa Regional Park, then don't miss a visit to Polynesian Cultural Center, and then immerse yourself in nature at Malaekahana State Recreation Area. Here are some ideas for day two: enjoy the sand and surf at Sunset Beach Park, pause for some photo ops at Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, then contemplate the waterfront views at Waimea Bay, then cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, and finally look for gifts at North Shore Macadamia Nut Company.

To see other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Laie trip itinerary planning app.

You can drive from Honolulu to Laie in 1.5 hours. Another option is to take a bus. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Honolulu in June; daily highs in Laie reach 80°F and lows reach 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 13th (Sun) to allow enough time to fly back home.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
