Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Visit USS Arizona Memorial and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail for their historical value. Explore hidden gems such as Lanikai Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Haleiwa (Waimea Valley, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more). There's much more to do: hike along Koko Crater Railway Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Halona Blowhole, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.
