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 explore and learn at USS Arizona Memorial and Queen Emma Summer Palace. Kids will enjoy Waimanalo Beach and Ko Olina Lagoons. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). It doesn't end there: trek along Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To find where to stay, photos, maps, and tourist information, read our Honolulu vacation planner.
