You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's much more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.
