Honolulu

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.
Visiting Waikiki Beach and Koko Crater Railway Trail will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Venture out of the city with trips to Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo), Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Lanikai Pillboxes) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, kick back and relax at Kuhio Beach, and don't miss a visit to Ko Olina Lagoons.

To see ratings, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu route maker tool.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
