In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Byodo-In Temple, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park and Bishop Museum. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach. Attractions like Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Sunset Beach Park make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and appreciate the history behind Queen Liliuokalani Statue.
