In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Turtle Bay Beach as well as Chinaman's Hat. Family-friendly places like USS Arizona Memorial and Diamond Head State Monument will thrill your kids. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Waimea Valley and Ko Olina Lagoons. Venture out of the city with trips to Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe), Lanikai Beach (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Scuba & Snorkeling, Waimea Bay, & more). There's much more to do: hike along Koko Crater Railway Trail, explore the gorgeous colors at Pele's Chair, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, and look for gifts at Lupicia.
