Shop till you drop at Ala Moana Center and Waikele Premium Outlets. Escape the urban bustle at Diamond Head State Monument and Lanikai Beach. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Pupukea (Ehukai Beach Park & Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, get to know the fascinating history of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail, stroll through Kailua Beach Park, and contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial.
