Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Head to Shimazu Shave ice and Nohea Galleryfor plenty of shopping. Visiting Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Kailua (Kayaking & Canoeing & Kailua Beach Park). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas.
