In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. When in Honolulu, make a side trip to see Swim with Dolphins in Waianae, approximately 52 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.
