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 get to explore USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Explore hidden gems such as Lanikai Beach and Bishop Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Waimea Bay (in Haleiwa), Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, walk around Kapiolani Regional Park, browse the exhibits of Shangri La, and trek along Diamond Head State Monument.
