In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Head to Ala Moana Center and Pakaloha Bikinis - Oahufor plenty of shopping. Do some cultural sightseeing at USS Arizona Memorial and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park), Haleiwa (Stand-Up Paddleboarding, Laniakea Beach, &more) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, stroll through Sharks Cove, make a trip to Ko Olina Lagoons, and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
