In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You've added The Queen Emma Summer Palace, Manoa Falls, Diamond Head Crater, and other attractions to your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Waimea Falls Park. Next up on the itinerary: appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

Plan my day in Honolulu using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Toronto, Canada to Honolulu is an approximately 14-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Toronto in July, things will get a bit warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 36°C and lows about 28°C. On the 13th (Fri), you're off toHilo.
