Honolulu is a southeastern coastal city on Oahu, the third largest Hawaiian
island. Between beaches, sports events, arts, and important historical
sites, there’s a little something for everyone in beautiful Honolulu.
Have an outdoors enthusiast in the family? Leave your hotel in Honolulu to
explore miles of trails at Koko Head Crater, Diamond Bay, the Makapuu
Lighthouse Trail and Hanauma Bay crater, all of which will wind you past
stunning beaches and rock formations. The Lyon Arboretum is also a must for
outdoors enthusiasts, as is Manoa Falls. Or, just grab your towel and head
out to Ala Moana Beach Park, Kaimana Beach, Fort DeRussey Beach Park or
Waikiki Beach for a good dose of sun.
History buffs will enjoy visiting Washington Place mansion, the former
residence of Queen Lili?u Loloku, for a look into the life of Hawaii’s last
reigning monarch. The Bishop Museum is also a must for those looking to
explore Polynesian history. Or, for a look into the region’s military
history, take a trip to Pearl Harbor, the largest natural harbor in the
state and the only naval base in the country that has a National Historic
Landmark designation. Board a ferry to the floating USS Arizona Memorial,
constructed over the sunken battleships hull, and learn about the attack
that will live in infamy.
At the end of a long day of touring, head to Kapahulu, an out of the way
neighborhood known for its many eateries, to indulge your senses with local
flavors. Afterwards, head back to your
IHG Honolulu hotel, where you’ll find restorative amenities to help you
rest, relax and embrace the day. Make the most of your time in Honolulu by
