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.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
