    we toured the Arizona memorial and it was very humbling to think of all the lives that were lost that day . Very sacred place to visit

    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.

    We tried for two days to get reservations right at 7:00 am when tickets dropped but could never get the website to load unfortunately. Demand is high! There are walk in tickets available for every time slot, not many though. We arrived at Hanauma Bay at 6:30 am and waited in our car, outside the park on the road, to enter at 6:45 am. You will see all the white tour vans sitting out on the road waiting as well. There is someone sitting on a bench with a blue umbrella, that person hands out walk in tickets (you still need to pay at the window when your reservation time arrives). Six of us were able to get walk in tickets for 8:00 am thankfully. Love the snorkeling and saw many different types of fish. Staff are all very helpful. The tram up and down the hill is very handy. Food is expensive, but choices are limited. Highly recommend for a great beach day!

    Busy but Beautiful! I guess it’s to be expected, going after Christmas and before New Year that it would be busy. I’ve never seen Waikiki beach so busy. It was still beautiful and enjoyable until someone decided to put their towel right on mine. Can we not respect at least a one foot between people. I don’t think that’s too much to ask for. Personal space people.

    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.

    The Bishop Museum proved to be a hidden gem, offering a nice blend of educational and entertaining elements. Its well-curated displays, immersive exhibits, and friendly staff make it a worthwhile destination for anyone interested in Hawaiian culture and history.

    As a retired submariner, I’ve been to a few submarine museums, and I think this is the best one I’ve ever been to. In addition to the World War II submarine USS Bowfin, the museum has two large halls. One hall is devoted to World War II submarine operations in the Pacific and the other hall is devoted to submarine operations since the end of World War II. Both are very informative and very well done.

    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.

    The upmarket shopping mall of Honolulu located close to the luxury hotels of Hilton etc.

    Parking available. Buses and trolleys stop there. If in Waikiki up Diamond Head end catch Pink Trolley in front of Dukes statue, next to police station.

    Although outdoor there is cover along front of shops. Everything from luxury brands to standard brands.

    Large food court at ground level including toilets located at rear.

    My only complaint - hardly any seating around shops.

    We had been to Pearl Harbor before but we had not visited the Air Museum. We decided to see that and take the tower tour. We bought our tickets at the visitor center at Pearl Harbor then took the shuttle to the museum. We were extremely fortunate because Ford ( A docent) was giving a tour that we joined. He told us about every aircraft in the museum and stories relating to events that happened that day. Ford brought that day to life for us as we listened to him. I’m guessing maybe he was giving a hanger tour? I’m not sure but if I return I will inquire about his services. When you arrive we watched a 12 min video about Dec 7, 1941. The museum has two hangers to visit and some other aircraft out side to see up close. We really enjoyed our time here. If you are interested in history this is a must visit site.

    Well laid out & fun shopping mall. Great parking stalls....compact stalls clearly marked. Love dinners there. Relaxing seating areas to rest weary feet with a cup of coffee or tea.

    Tons of vendors and they were all very kind! There were some vendors selling locally made things, but not as many as I had hoped.

    Drive up Round Top Drive to Pu'u 'Ualaka'a State Park to the summit where you find the Tantalus Lookout. Spectacular views on the entirety of Honolulu stretching from Diamond Head and across the city. Try to go on a nice day when the sky is blue and the sun is shining. The drive up takes about 15 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.

    We really enjoyed visiting the beach here, there were a few places for shade and the waves were impressive. The edge of the shore is a bit rocky, but afterwards once you're in it's fine. Well worth the time!
