Mini-Guide to Honolulu, Hawaii
by eTravelogue.com - America's Online Road Trip Planner
Situated on the island of Oahu, Honolulu is the capital city of Hawaii. And Hawaii, for those of you who don't know, is America's answer to a daily paradise. Once you've visited breathtaking Waikiki Beach, you may decide you never want to leave. The good news for you is that there's plenty for you to do during your stay.
For those of you who want to experience the beauty of the island firsthand, you can snorkel, windsurf, or just bounce on a water trampoline at famous Diamond Head. If that's not enough to entice you into the water, join one of the daily dolphin excursions, where you don a snorkel, jump right in, and actually swim with the dolphins. For the truly adventurous, climb into one of the steel shark cages, and get eye-to-eye with the ocean's most famous predator through the Hawaii Shark Encounters.
Or, if you just detest getting wet, allow the Atlantis Submarine to take you 100 feet below the surface to view sea life and sunken vessels on the ocean floor.
For the historians, one of Honolulu's most famous sites is Pearl Harbor, and you can ride an authentic WWII "Duck" right up to the Arizona Memorial. Experience the culture of Honolulu through visiting the Polynesian Cultural Center. 42 acres of tropical splendor will give way to authentic war dances and wedding ceremonies, tiki carvings, fire knives, and after sunset, firewalkers and a full-blown genuine luau.
The Magic of Polynesia will entertain you with magic, dance, and music, and the Society of Seven will give you one of the best acts this side of Las Vegas. But to fully experience the entertainment of Honolulu, one must see the one, the only Don Ho Show.
