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 Iolani Palace. For shopping fun, head to Ala Moana Center or Ko Hana Distillers. There's much more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.
