The English translation of “Honolulu” is “sheltered harbor”. When you look at the shape of the city, you will know why.
There’s no falling back or springing ahead in Honolulu, as Hawaii does not participate in daylight savings time.
Spam is hugely popular in Honolulu, despite its reputation on the mainland. Eat like the locals and try Musubi, a Japanese style rice ball topped with Spam.
More than 100 beaches surround Honolulu, which is more than any other city in the world.
Hawaii’s weather is legendary, and for good reason – this is “paradise” after all! High temps throughout the year range from about 80 to 89 degrees Fahrenheit, and lows rarely dip below the mid-60s Fahrenheit. The air in Honolulu is humid, but cool trade winds generally keep the temperatures from getting uncomfortable. And there’s a reason why the hills surrounding the city are so green – it does rain off and on throughout the year. However, even if rain is falling in the mountains and on the windward side of Oahu, the Waikiki resort area is generally dry and sunny.
