In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get a sense of the local culture at USS Arizona Memorial and Saint Augustine by-the-Sea. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Venture out of the city with trips to Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei), Pupukea (Sharks Cove & Banzai Pipeline) and Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Lanikai Beach, kick back and relax at Kuhio Beach, hike along Lanikai Pillboxes, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.
