Get some cultural insight at Iolani Palace and Battleship Missouri Memorial. Escape the urban bustle at Shark Diving and Swim with Dolphins. Venture out of the city with trips to Banzai Pipeline (in Pupukea), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of USS Arizona Memorial, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and identify plant and animal life at Pele's Chair.
