Planning a trip to Honolulu HI is an exciting experience, and with so much to see and do the possibilities are endless. With its tropical climate, stunning beaches, vibrant culture and array of activities, Honolulu is the perfect destination for your next getaway.
Be sure to check out some of Honolulu’s most popular attractions including Iolani Palace, Fort DeRussy Beach Park, Foster Botanical Garden, Diamond Head State Monument , King David Kalākaua Statue, Waikīkī Beach and Pearl Harbor National Memorial . The Iolani Palace is the only official state residence of royalty in the United States and was home to the Hawaiian Kingdom’s last two monarchs - King Kalakaua and Queen Liliuokalani. It features period furnishings, artwork, photographs and videos of early Hawaiian life. The nearby Fort DeRussy Beach Park is a great spot for picnics or swimming in calm waters as it's protected by reefs offshore. Foster Botanical Garden offers visitors a different kind of experience as they explore over 14 acres of lush greenery as well as exotic flowers and plants from around the world. Diamond Head State Monument stands tall at 762 feet above sea level and provides breathtaking views of Waikiki beach below. Be sure to take time to visit Kawaiahao Church which was built in 1842 by missionaries from New England who converted Hawaiians to Christianity – it’s currently Hawaii’s oldest standing church. Next up is the iconic King David Kalākaua Statue located just outside his namesake hotel on Waikīkī Beach – this statue was dedicated in 1922 by Princess Kaʻiulani in honor of her uncle who was responsible for restoring Hawaiian culture after many years of missionary rule. Lastly you won’t want to miss out on visiting Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum which features aircraft exhibits related to World War II or take a moment of silence at the nearby Pearl Harbor National Memorial which commemorates those lost during wartime attacks on December 7th 1941.
