Spring is a joyous time. Lands cast off winter’s shadow and a remarkable flowering begins. In North America, spring heralds a curious annual migration. College students flock in large numbers from campuses across the cold north to more southerly latitudes.

Honolulu Weather
Honolulu is located on the fringe of the tropical belt and as such it is summer all year round and therefore good for visiting anytime, though you have to take note of the wet and dry spells. The peak tourist season is from mid-June to September; hotel rates are high and there are many tourists. December to March is the wet spell, where the rainfall increases and the air turns cool and humid. However, rarely is it that there is extensive rain but do take your rain gear along.
