Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Escape the urban bustle at Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Do your shopping at Polynesian Cultural Center and Ala Moana Center. Step out of Honolulu with an excursion to Sunset Beach Park in Haleiwa--about 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, look for gifts at Shimazu Shave ice, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park.
