Pay homage at the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor
The deck of the boat is still underwater and a shrine room above features the names of those who lost their lives in the event, carved in stone. The moving experience is greatly enhanced by the audio and video features.
Hike to Diamond Head Crater
Diamond Head Crater is an ancient volcanic formation revered by locals as a sacred site. Visitors prize it, too, and can climb a moderately strenuous trail in an hour and reach the peak. The panoramic views show the coastline, the island, and across the crater itself, 3,520 feet in diameter.

More Things to Do in Honolulu
Go off the beaten path with American Airlines to discover more things to do in Honolulu. See the royal Iolani Palace, find out where the locals snorkel and surf, and soak up a stunning sunset view from a Puu Ualakaa Park. American is with you every step of the way.
Snorkel in Hanauma Bay
Snorkle at a curving beach that gives way to brilliant, warm aquamarine waters. Float over the bay floor – it's actually a volcanic crater – to view creatures such as green sea turtles, Moorish idols and iridescent parrotfish in this protected marine nature preserve.
Walk from lavish Iolani Palace
Tours will clue you in on the history of Hawaiian monarchy, to Chinatown, for a slice of local life. In addition to ethnic restaurants, old temples and small parks, there's a string of lei vendors lining Beretania and Maunakea streets – your chance to purchase the ideal souvenir.
Watch the sunset from Puu Ualakaa State Park
At more than 1,000 feet, it offers what many consider the best views on the island, with the lights of downtown and the dramatic peak of Diamond Head visible from the platform.
Surf the North Shore
The North Shore has the best waves on Oahu at places such as Sunset Beach and Waimea Bay. These destinations are the Hawaii of your imagination, and for good reason—surfers love winter's thunderous waves, which can peak 15 to 20 feet at Sunset Beach. Or just laze about with the family on the golden sands.
Fly to Molokai or Lanai
The two smallest and least-visited of the main Hawaiian islands. Molokai is known for its rural traditions, the brilliant white Papohaku Beach and mule rides on the Kaluapapa Peninsula, site of a former leper colony. Lanai is home to a pair of Four Seasons resorts and may be the most romantic spot in Hawaii.
