Plan Your Trip to Honolulu: Best of Honolulu Tourism

About Honolulu
As the capital of Hawaii, Honolulu delivers on big-city vibes just steps from some of the best nature on the islands (in the world, really). Spend your city days in downtown Waikiki, with its blocks of shops and sky-high hotels, or head to the food haven of Kapahulu to snack on poke bowls and shaved ice. The beaches are always right there—ready for surfing, sunbathing, snorkelling, and swimming with sea turtles and dolphins. There’s also nearby waterfalls and volcanos to check out—from Diamond Head Crater to Waimea Falls. Don’t forget to carve out a day or two to get to know the island’s roots: Roam through the remnants of Hawaii’s monarchy at Iolani Palace and Washington Place, or learn about Hawaiian natural history and Polynesian culture at the Bishop Museum. You can find tickets, tips, and even more recs below.
