In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Do your shopping at Polynesian Cultural Center and Ala Moana Center. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Waikiki Beach and Kailua Beach Park. Step out of Honolulu to go to Haleiwa and see Sunset Beach Park, which is approximately 1h 05 min away. And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, stroll around Kapiolani Regional Park, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.
