Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial, stroll through Waikiki Beach, and see the interesting displays at Iolani Palace.
