Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Visit USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial for their historical value. Relax by the water at Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center.
