Honolulu

Honolulu, HI, USA

Honolulu is certainly a beautiful place! On our first night there we enjoyed a stroll on Waikiki beach - very crowded, but the view of the sunset was outstanding. Our hotel was not right on the beach, but offered views from our upper floor room of the ocean. We spent a day doing the "Circle Tour" of the whole island - learned a lot about Hawaii history (albeit, a bit slanted to the questionable views of our tour guide!) Of course, no trip is complete without a visit to Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona memorial - truly inspiring. About the only downside to this visit was the Honolulu traffic - wow, we were not prepared for the worst congestion we've experienced since LA!
