In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Your inner history buff will appreciate National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and Byodo-In Temple. Museum-lovers will appreciate Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor and USS Arizona Memorial. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Scuba & Snorkeling, Waimea Valley, & more), Kailua (Kayaking & Canoeing, Lanikai Beach, & more) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Kapolei). The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take in the dramatic natural features at Ka'ena Point State Park, and take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Step out of the city life by going to Kīlauea and Holei Sea Arch. Get some cultural insight at Jagger Museum and Liliuokalani Gardens. Venture out of the city with trips to Punalu‘U Beach (in Pahala), Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu) and Hilo (Coconut Island, Richardson Beach Park, & more). Spend the 13th (Fri) among the fascinating landscape of Kulanaokuaiki Campground. There's much more to do: stroll through Kilauea Iki Trailhead, admire the natural beauty at Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, explore the striking landscape at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), and cruise along Devastation Trail.

Kailua-Kona ©
Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Kona Coffee Living History Farm and Ackerman Galleries. Take a break from the city and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Waipi'o Valley. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kailua-Kona: Waipio Valley Lookout (in Honokaa), Puako (Stand-Up Paddleboarding & Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area) and Captain Cook (The Painted Church & Kealakekua Bay). There's still lots to do: add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, appreciate the views at Pololu Valley Lookout, cast your line with a fishing tour, and identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm.
