In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll get in some beach time at Waikiki Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae) and Malaekahana State Recreation Area (in Laie). There's much more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, appreciate the extensive heritage of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, and contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace.
