Explore Sightseeing in Honolulu

Hawaii’s lively capital boasts an array of cultural sites, historic buildings and landmarks to keep you busy during your vacation. Archaeologists believe Polynesian migrants settled present-day Honolulu more than 2,000 years ago; visit the Bishop Museum to view a diverse collection of Polynesian artifacts. Take a guided tour of elegant Iolani Palace, a National Historic Landmark that was completed in 1882.

Be sure not to miss the hike up the famous Diamond Head State Monument volcanic crater, located at the end of Waikiki. Other top sights in Honolulu include colorful Chinatown, Aliiolani Hale (Hawaii’s oldest government building), the Honolulu Zoo, Queen Kapiolani Park and the Aloha Tower, which overlooks historic, bustling Honolulu Harbor.
