I have been to the Hawaiian islands many times in my lifetime, and I love it there. Of all of thy trips, I had never stayed in Honolulu. It is my least favorite place to go on the islands. It is a city. I do not go to Hawaii for city life. I will say that it is certainly still beautiful, and the weather is perfect like other places on the islands. It is just a crowded city with noise and tourists everywhere. There are rows upon rows of hotels. I had a nice time, but I like the tranquility of the other islands.
