Start off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): see the world from above with a helicopter tour, then explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, and then take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument. On the 4th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To find ratings, reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu online vacation planner .
