Family-friendly places like Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Waikiki Beach will thrill your kids. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). The adventure continues: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, enjoy the sand and surf at Turtle Bay Beach, pause for some photo ops at Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, and take a tour of Battleship Missouri Memorial.
