In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore hidden gems such as Photography Tours and Food Tours. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, examine the collection at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and step off the mainland to explore Magic Island.
