In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Popular historic sites such as Battleship Missouri Memorial and Iolani Palace are in your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, and look for gifts at Shimazu Shave ice.

For ratings, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu tour builder tool .
