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 Kailua Beach Park. Attractions like USS Arizona Memorial and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument and kick back and relax at Kapiolani Regional Park.
