Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, meet some fierce fish with a shark diving experience, and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.
