Keep things going the next day: make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court, then get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, then admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley, and finally stop by Pakaloha Bikinis.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, pause for some photo ops at USS Arizona Memorial, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Diamond Head State Monument.
