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 Koko Crater Railway Trail, Laniakea Beach, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor, and other attractions you added. Get outdoors at Kapiolani Regional Park and Alex's Aquatic Adventures. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sharks Cove and Banzai Pipeline. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Ehukai Beach Park (in Pupukea) and Waimea Valley (in Haleiwa). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu online trip itinerary builder .
