Sure! Just click on the'Stroke' wriiten in the toolbar. From there you can change an array of options relating to stroke.

Just like candyfloss said Just click the stroke tab and then there is different options in there for you to change you stroke however you want. There is also a tool that you can use to change the width of your stroke.....it depends on what version you have. I know it's in CS5 and CS6.....just look up Width Tool in your search. But it's located with your twirl tool, pucker tool.......I think you can hold "Shift+W" to open the tool.

I use cs4 and if you click on the stroke look up top (or how you have your AI set up) see attached



This is what makes the learning curve complicated but fun with adobe products. You can do the same thing many ways.

In Illustrator CS6 version, there is Width tool (Sifth-W) you assign a point on the line that you want to change the width and drag it over the side points that appear and thus changes the width at that point

There's no difference between stoke and offset path. At least with stroke you can change it anytime without having to go back and redo the steps. They both have their uses but I wouldn't say one is better than the other... depends on your workflow
