Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Bellows Field Beach Park (in Waimanalo), Pupukea (Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument, Banzai Pipeline, &more) and Kailua (Lanikai Pillboxes & Lanikai Beach). There's still lots to do: capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, make a trip to Waikiki Beach Walk, examine the collection at Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum, and savor the flavors at Food & Drink.
