The Tourist Attractions in Honolulu:
Honolulu has many tourist attractions though for many people a highlight is a visit to the popular and famous Waikiki Beach!
Stretching for 1.5 miles (2.4 km) Waikiki Beach features soft white sand and has numerous hotels overlooking it. The fame of Waikiki Beach comes at a price though because this is usually the busiest beach in the whole of Hawaii. Visitors looking for a traditional Hawaiian beach experience and holiday may be better going elsewhere!
After a visit to the beach, check out Waikiki Aquarium. This is the third oldest aquarium in the United States and is well worth a visit to see its many hundreds of species from around Hawaii and the rest of the Pacific.
Keeping with the theme, Honolulu Zoo is another popular attraction. Visitors will see a great collection of exotic and unusual animals in addition to popular large animals like the elephant, giraffes, lions, rhinos, and more.
Just outside the city proper is the famous Pearl Harbor. The attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese was the deciding event that brought the United States in to World War 2 and the harbour and memorials are amongst the top attractions in Honolulu and indeed Hawaii.
The USS Arizona Memorial marks the resting place of most of the crew who were killed onboard this ship as it sat in the harbour.
The Bernice P. Bishop Museum, which is also known as the Hawaii State Museum of Natural and Cultural History, is an excellent museum for visitors interested more in the Polynesian cultures. The museum features the world’s largest collection of Polynesian artefacts, and was founded in 1889.
Another impressive museum is that of the Iolani Palace. This former royal palace was home to the Hawaiian monarchs and later became the Hawaii State Capitol until 1969. Since 1978 it has been a museum and is open to the public.
Away from the hustle and bustle of Honolulu city centre, Diamond Head is a popular place for a hike to see the great views and to see inside the crater. Diamond Head is a volcanic tuff cone and an uneven trail winds 1.1 kilometres (0.7 miles) to the edge of the crater. The views from above are very impressive, as is the view of Diamond Head from Honolulu!
