Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kids will enjoy Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head State Monument. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

To see ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu road trip tool .
