In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Attractions like Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). The adventure continues: go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial.

To find ratings, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip planner.
