In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

To find maps, ratings, where to stay, and tourist information, read Honolulu road trip planning website .

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Honolulu is an approximately 26-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Brasilia Time (BRT) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 7 hours. In July, Honolulu is somewhat warmer than Rio de Janeiro - with highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel to Lahaina.
