In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Museum-lovers will appreciate USS Arizona Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum and USS Utah Memorial. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei), Pupukea (Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument & Sharks Cove) and Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku). Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at Lanikai Beach, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and walk around Waimanalo Beach.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Honolulu road trip app.
