Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). Next up on the itinerary: pause for some photo ops at USS Arizona Memorial, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.
