In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Honolulu is known for historic sites, nature, beaches, adventure, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

To see where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip builder site .
