In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Get a sense of the local culture at USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's much more to do: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, tour the pleasant surroundings at Manoa Falls, and hike along Lanikai Pillbox Hike.
