    I went there on Tuesday Afternoon February 20 2024 after booking my online reservation which costs $5 + a fee which makes The price $6.15 for one person & gets you a one hour time slot.It was hot so bring sunscreen & water the trailer gets progressively twisty narrow & vertical leading up to The Top.I recommend that you might want to go earlier as some of the people doing this walk weren't exactly quick or in this best shape.I could've made it up to the Summit & back in about 40 minutes if there wasn't slow people that wouldn't move aside.On a scale I think this is a fair challenge but I think it isn't as tough as going up The Law in North Berwick in Scotland Diamond Head & The Law are both of a similar height Diamond Head is just a bit over a Hundred + feet higher but there's no steps to lead you to the Apex at The North Berwick Law & Hill Of The Cross in Holguin Southern Cuba now those massive steps now those make that a workout & then some on a hot day there.

    This is truly a humbling and somber trip to the National Memorial in Pearl Harbor. You get to appreciate the sacrifices and heroism displayed that fateful day and take time to reflect internally that freedom is not free. Definitely take the opportunity to visit. We did the standby early in the day to avoid congested commute times.

    This is an absolute must visit for everyone. From the moment you step onto the grounds you are transported back in time to that fateful day in 1941.

    The exhibits are meticulously curated, offering a comprehensive and respectful tribute to those who lost their lives.
    Walking through the museum, you are engulfed in the events leading up to and following the attack on Pearl Harbour. The artefacts on display are incredibly moving, each one telling a story of bravery, sacrifice and resilience.

    The highlight of the visit is undoubtedly the USS Arizona Memorial. It is a profoundly moving experience to stand above the sunken battleship, paying homage to the sailors who remain entombed within its hull.

    This is a 5 star experience that I highly recommend to anyone visiting Hawaii.

    We visited Iolani Palace on our fist day in Oahu and it was absolutely the perfect way to start our time here. Hearing the personal stories of the Hawaiian leaders was moving and grounded us in appreciation for the hearts and character of the Hawaiian people as we visited beautiful places on their island.

    Well worth the stop especially if you enjoy history. She is a beautiful ship and should be seen by all. My adult sons felt this was their favorite out of all the sights of Pearl Harbor.

    Not only were the views from this trail Breathtaking, we were able to see baby humpback whales, playing out in the ocean. There are steep parts on the trail but still worth the views.

    We visited the Cemetery on our way back to Waikiki from Pearl Harbor. It was nice to end our day walking around the memorial, reading the information and taking in the impressive view.

    If you have a car on Oahu, don't miss going to National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

    Interesting museum about US army history focused on Hawaii. Lots of history and learning here.

    Well organised with written explanations.

    Has a gift shop.

    Free admission with signing of guest book required.

    A guided tour would be good.

    It's near the beach and the Hilton Hawaiian Village.

    It was an impeccably wonderful stay at the heart of Hawaii.

    I felt like I was pampered and relaxed.

    I have only a few hiccup on the overall stay!

    Having been to Honolulu a number of times, we looked for something to do that we haven't done before and the Lyon Arboretum was it. Very scenic with many lovely plants.
    While you can do this on your own, a guided tour will add to your experience. There is a lot of walking and on uneven paths, so if you have mobility problems you might want to rethink coming here as the pathways are not wheelchair friendly. Do wear good walking shoes, not sandals.

    Great for an evening stroll or walk to your favourite beach spot you will learn all the shops and restaurants on both sides of the street. Also for those who love to people watch this is the area you want to be.

    Beautiful Catholic Church since 1854. We attended the Sunday 10:00 am Mass which the choir sang in Hawaiian in traditional Hawaiian clothing and garments. Very lovely indeed. The 10 am Mass was somewhat crowded with occupancy maybe 85-90%. St. Augustine By The Sea is a lovely church and excellent architectural stop to view or pray.

    Located just off the beach across from the Ugg store, this is a great place to stop and get a photo of the family with a local hero.

    Pu'u 'Ualaka'a State Park is where you find Round Top Drive that takes you up to the Tantalus Lookout. Spectacular panoramic views on the entirety of Honolulu stretching from Diamond Head and across the city. Try to go on a nice day when the sun is shining and there are blue skies. The drive up takes about 15-20 minutes. I went around 11am on a Sunday morning and had no problems finding a parking spot. Hardly any others there at that time. Apparently, this is a favorite spot for car break ins so don't leave valuables visible, but I had no issues. There are also many nice hiking trails in the area including the hike to Manoa Falls and the Makiki Valley Trail

    We actually were looking for a hiking trail when I saw the sign for the Queen Emma Summer Palace. We could not find the hiking trail so we decided to check out this Palace. We are so glad we did. If you are interested in Hawaiian history you will really enjoy stopping here. The woman working there was very knowledgeable about the history of the palace and the royal family. I highly recommend putting this on you to do list when visiting Oahu.
