Honolulu

4.3
Cemeteries · Scenic Walking Areas · Beaches
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. Most travelers enter Hawaii through this city, so this is not the place for those wishing to get away from it all. A fast-paced and crowded urban center, Honolulu still manages to retain much of its laid-back atmosphere and traditional culture. The city's varied neighborhoods offer a selection of vacation ideas for every visitor, from sandy beaches crowded with surfers and swimmers to the quieter areas just north of downtown, which harbor picturesque snorkeling spots and pristine parks abundant in native plant and animal life. Add Honolulu and other destinations to your itinerary using our United States trip itinerary maker site, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
