In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's much more to do: explore the galleries of USS Arizona Memorial, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument.
