In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
We've included these beaches for you: Lanikai Beach and Ala Moana Beach Park. Visit National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and Queen Emma Summer Palace for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Skydiving, & more), Ka'ena Point State Park (in Waianae) and Sharks Cove (in Pupukea). There's much more to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail, and take in the dramatic natural features at Halona Blowhole.
