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 find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

For other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, use the Honolulu road trip planner .
