    Waikiki Beach

    203 reviews

    One evening there was an elderly man playing classical music on his violin under one of the small pavilions by the sidewalk. Very moving. I've lived in New Orleans many years and have never seen a street performer so impressive.

    Diamond Head State Monument

    125 reviews

    Be careful if hiking from your hotel and using the map it feature on this app. It took us to a residential neighborhood on the opposite side of the mountain. Hopefully the administrators of the app will correct this issue.

    Dec 7th, 1941. The attack on Pearl Harbor and the result provide the setting for the current sights. Here you will find the Welcome center and surrounding shops, information, and historical information. Next there is the USS Bowfin submarine, museum, USS Arizona Memorial, and USS Missouri Battleship. The Arizona is free but all others are at a cost.

    Ala Moana Center

    79 reviews

    It's got everything, a whole raft of stores from Chanel to surf shops, and scads of cafes and restaurants, and plenty of parking. So if you want to shop in Honolulu, don't fight it. You'll just end up at the Ala Moana Center anyhow.

    Ala Moana Beach Park

    42 reviews

    Ala Moana is a small beach front park located between Honolulu and Waikiki Beach. The issue is its not much of a beach and is usually full of various people. There are a lot of better options out there. The best part is the great view of Diamond Head.

    Halona Blowhole

    34 reviews

    Right around the corner from the Halona Beach Cove you have to be here at the right time where the surf is up creating an explosion of water into the air through the blow hole. Otherwise your just looking at the rocks, beach, cove nearby which is nice on its own.

    Manoa Falls

    30 reviews

    Easily one of my favourite walks my family did while on the island. The lush and secluded wildlife and atmosphere made me feel like I was transported to a page from a National Geographic magazine.

    Waikiki Aquarium

    34 reviews

    This place isn't very big. You could easily see everything here in less than an hour. What I like about the Waikiki Aquarium is that they have their own parking. (Free parking) Also, they give military $3 off general admission. My favorite exhibit at the Waikiki Aquarium is the one of the seals. Oh, and you can also see the ...

    Duke Kahanamoku Statue

    This is a great photo opportunity on Waikiki Beach. The statue is generally covered in flower lei's, which goes to show the local flavor. At sunset, this is an especially good place to be. Ice cream just across the street.

    National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific

    23 reviews

    This extremely picturesque and peaceful memorial honors the members of the armed services who were killed and whose bodies were not recovered from the wars in the Pacific. It is also a cemetery for those whose bodies were found. I would warn that it seems to be assumed that one will visit by car. It can be walked to, but ...

    Bishop Museum

    21 reviews

    Oh, Bishop Museum. How you've played a role in my life. From my days as a snot-nosed kid, frolicking madly in the dinosaur exhibits they used to have here (for which I loved this place for). Later on, it would serve as the venue for a high school graduation party. For its role as a local venue, it wins my ...

    Honolulu Museum of Art

    18 reviews

    Come for the art, but make sure you call ahead of time and reserve a spot for lunch. Food is great, and it is fun to sit down after looking at all the museum has to offer. The gift shop near the restaurant is amazing. I buy earrings here every time I am in Honolulu. Call from the mainland to ...
