Honolulu, Oahu

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Popular historic sites such as USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial are in your itinerary. Relax by the water at Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Ehukai Beach Park (in Pupukea). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take a memorable drive along Makapu'u Point.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
