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 Battleship Missouri Memorial. For shopping fun, head to Ala Moana Center or Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery-Pacific, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
