Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

The Basics

Aside from Honolulu’s iconic Waikiki Beach, walking, driving, and even Segway city sightseeing tours feature downtown Honolulu attractions like Iolani Palace, bustling Chinatown (one of the country’s oldest), early mission houses, churches, and the Bishop Museum, which is filled with historical and cultural artifacts. Many visitors venture above and beyond the city limits on helicopter tours to take in the island’s unique and verdant volcanic topography, on land-based Oahu tours that circle the island, and on water and boat tours that cruise the Pacific. Honolulu is the perfect jumping-off point for other Oahu sights including Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor (home to the USSArizona and USSMissouri memorials, as well as the Pacific Aviation Museum), the Dole Plantation, the Polynesian Cultural Center, the North Shore surf town of Haleiwa, laid-back Kailua, Sea Life Park, Pali Lookout, and the protected snorkeling reefs at Hanauma Bay.

Awesome 2 thumbs up.
The knowledge of information we received on our sites that we visit it was great. The driver was awesome in all the information he shared with us and he took us to visit several places I can say I really enjoyed the trip.

When to Get There

Honolulu enjoys year-round balmy weather, so many visitors make the trip in winter (November through March). Hawaii’s peak tourism times tend to coincide with breaks in the US academic calendar—summer, spring break, and the Christmas/New Year holidays. To get the best rates, dodge the crowds, and still enjoy some warm sun in the winter, plan a vacation for February, a particularly affordable time to travel to Honolulu.

Popular Honolulu Events

The Honolulu Festival, celebrating the unique cultural blend of the city and neighboring countries in the Pacific Rim, is held over three days each March with parades, musical entertainment, and craft fairs. A unique and Buddhist twist on Memorial Day (observed on the last Monday of May) is also a sight to see—thousands of paper lanterns are set afloat at Ala Moana Beach Park. Kamehameha Day (June 11) sees copious amounts of floral lei draped on statues throughout the city, but perhaps the city’s most unusual festival is April’s Waikiki Spam Jam, where kitschy costumes and roadside grills honor Hawaii’s favorite meat since World War II.
