In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, take a tour of Battleship Missouri Memorial, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center.

To find photos, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu vacation trip planner.
