In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Get outdoors at Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head State Monument. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Scuba & Snorkeling & Sunset Beach Park). It doesn't end there: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.
