In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Step out of the city life by going to Diamond Head State Monument and Photography Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Lanikai Beach (in Kailua), Pupukea (Banzai Pipeline & Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument) and Haleiwa (Scuba & Snorkeling, Sunset Beach Park, & more). The adventure continues: trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail and explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
