In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Kailua Beach Park, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To see photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu tour builder tool .
