Explore hidden gems such as Lanikai Beach and Kapiolani Regional Park. Museum-lovers will get to explore USS Arizona Memorial and Bishop Museum. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and hike along Koko Crater Railway Trail.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
