Most tourists looking for a classic fun-in-the-sun vacation flock to the city's sandy beaches and exceptional surfing and diving spots, but things to do in Honolulu include a number of activities away from the water. History lovers can pay their respects to America's fallen soldiers and check their knowledge about the attack on Pearl Harbor at USS Arizona Memorial, commemorating one of the most iconic World War II battleships. Don't worry about the calories as you cycle your way from one eatery to another, sampling the fine tastes of the exotic Hawaiian cuisine.
