Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

The Basics

Aside from Honolulu’s iconic Waikiki Beach, walking, driving, and even Segway city sightseeing tours feature downtown Honolulu attractions like Iolani Palace, bustling Chinatown (one of the country’s oldest), early mission houses, churches, and the Bishop Museum, which is filled with historical and cultural artifacts. Many visitors venture above and beyond the city limits on helicopter tours to take in the island’s unique and verdant volcanic topography, on land-based Oahu tours that circle the island, and on water and boat tours that cruise the Pacific. Honolulu is the perfect jumping-off point for other Oahu sights including Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor (home to the USSArizona and USSMissouri memorials, as well as the Pacific Aviation Museum), the Dole Plantation, the Polynesian Cultural Center, the North Shore surf town of Haleiwa, laid-back Kailua, Sea Life Park, Pali Lookout, and the protected snorkeling reefs at Hanauma Bay.

Airport Shuttle Round Trip Honolulu and Waikiki or Cruise Terminal
We arrived in Honolulu at the best time ever! Exactly when the fireworks started on 12-31 on our drive to the hotel. What a way to bring in the New Year!!! Mahola. Our return driver was a wonderful and gracious host. I highly recommend this shuttle service for all visitors. Thank you so much for such a fun and enjoyable experience. Bless you.

Half-Day Pearl Harbor and Honolulu Landmarks Tour
My wife and I booked a tour of Pearl Harbor and Honolulu Landmarks and it was amazing! We were lucky to be the only couple touring that day and we learned so many new things about the city, culture and Hawaii history. Would highly recommend this tour to anybody visiting Honolulu that would like to do a half day tour!

Great transportation, reliable and easy pick up. Highly recommended!! On time, and clean. I don’t like that the comment box is requiring me to say more before I can submit the review. Very annoying

Private Arrival Transfer: Honolulu International Airport to Oahu Hotels or Cruise Terminal
We were late making it through Covid screening and getting our luggage. Leialoh, and Tim our driver were not just patient but they were on the lookout for us, calling out or name and looking all through baggage for us! We would have never found them on our own 😅 AND! Our son left his phone in the limo, we got ahold of Leialoh and she had Tim bring us his phone first thing in the morning, the two of them have truly started our Hawaiian vacation off with the heart of Ohana. Aloha ❤️

When to Get There

Honolulu enjoys year-round balmy weather, so many visitors make the trip in winter (November through March). Hawaii’s peak tourism times tend to coincide with breaks in the US academic calendar—summer, spring break, and the Christmas/New Year holidays. To get the best rates, dodge the crowds, and still enjoy some warm sun in the winter, plan a vacation for February, a particularly affordable time to travel to Honolulu.

Popular Honolulu Events

The Honolulu Festival, celebrating the unique cultural blend of the city and neighboring countries in the Pacific Rim, is held over three days each March with parades, musical entertainment, and craft fairs. A unique and Buddhist twist on Memorial Day (observed on the last Monday of May) is also a sight to see—thousands of paper lanterns are set afloat at Ala Moana Beach Park. Kamehameha Day (June 11) sees copious amounts of floral lei draped on statues throughout the city, but perhaps the city’s most unusual festival is April’s Waikiki Spam Jam, where kitschy costumes and roadside grills honor Hawaii’s favorite meat since World War II.
