In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Step out of the city life by going to Shark Diving and Koko Crater Trail. Step off the beaten path and head to Kailua Beach Park and Waimea Bay. Venture out of the city with trips to Sunset Beach Park (in Haleiwa), Sharks Cove (in Pupukea) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, take some stellar pictures from Puu Ualakaa State Park, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and stop by Shirokiya Japan Village Walk.
