In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Ala Moana Center and Shirokiya Japan Village Walk. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Sunset Beach Park and Waikiki Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay, Shark Diving, & more) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: hike along Koko Crater Trail, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park.

To find ratings, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu road trip planner.

Tampa to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 5 hours. In July in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 88°F during the day and 75°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Kihei.
