Honolulu is the state capital of Hawaii, the chain of volcanic islands on the Pacific Ocean synonymous with hula, luaus (feasts) and leis (flower garlands). If beaches, big waves and night dives don’t appeal to you, there’s no shortage of World War II sites, dramatic hikes and coastal drives to fill your days with awe. If you so fancy, fly to Big Island for star gazing and lava viewing.
Best Time to Visit:
Honolulu’s temperate climate can be enjoyed all year round, though it is warmest from June until October. Expect heavy rainfall in December and January.
