You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Haleiwa (Pupukea Beach Park, Sunset Beach Park, &more), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach) and Kapolei (Ihilani Spa & Ko'Olina Beach Park). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Diamond Head State Monument, admire the masterpieces at Honolulu Museum of Art, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and stroll through Waikiki Beach.

To find reviews, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip planner.
