Big Pineapple

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 US Army Museum of Hawaii. Get some cultural insight at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park and Bishop Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Kailua (Kalama Beach Park, Lanikai Beach, &more) and Waimanalo Beach (in Waimanalo). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and stroll through Kapiolani Regional Park.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
