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.
Family-friendly places like Diamond Head State Monument and Manoa Falls will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Haleiwa (Shark Diving, Waimea Bay, &more), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). And it doesn't end there: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

For where to stay, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip maker website.

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.
