Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Kailua to see Kailua Beach Park about 32 minutes away. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at USS Arizona Memorial, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.
