Honolulu

— 8 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
USS Arizona Memorial and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head State Monument. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach), Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie) and Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sunset Beach Park, explore the activities along Waimea Bay, get some jogging in at Ala Moana Beach Park, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

For ratings, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu day trip planner.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
