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 Iolani Palace. Family-friendly places like Waikiki Beach and Polynesian Cultural Center will thrill your kids. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). The adventure continues: browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
