In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Popular historic sites such as USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial are in your itinerary. Visit Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park for some beach relaxation. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Ko Hana Distillers (in Waipahu), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, see the vivid underwater world at Pele's Chair, and take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument.
