Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
We've included these beaches for you: Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Diamond Head State Monument and Swim with Dolphins. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, explore the galleries of Iolani Palace, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

To find maps, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu visit planner.
