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 Lanikai Beach and Kalama Beach Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Koko Crater Railway Trail and Saint Augustine by-the-Sea. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lanikai Pillboxes, kick back and relax at Kuhio Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument.

To find traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu trip itinerary maker website.
