Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll get in some beach time at Waikiki Beach and Sunset Beach Park. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument.
