Top Attractions In Honolulu

Honolulu’s Waikiki neighborhood is best-known for its namesake beach, but there’s plenty of things to do offshore, too. Wander the boutiques and shops along Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues, then plan a visit to Honolulu Zoo, now open again for visitors. Soak up some sun at the world-famous Waikiki Beach, then stick around to enjoy the area’s vibrant nightlife after dark.

Iolani Palace

Built in 1881 by King Kalakaua, Iolani Palace in Honolulu was the official royal residence of Hawaii’s last two reigning monarchs. Explore the beautifully restored rooms and lavish apartments, including the private living quarters where Queen Liliuokalani remained imprisoned after the monarchy’s fall. The palace is open again for a reduced number of visitors, with advance bookings required.

Pearl Harbor National Memorial

Dedicated to “a date which will live in infamy,” the Pearl Harbor National Memorial is a must-visit while in Honolulu. Some of the historic sites remain closed, but the visitor center, museums, and U.S.S. Arizona Memorial have all reopened to the public, adhering to local safety guidelines.

Ala Moana Center

Hawaii’s largest open-air shopping center borders Waikiki in Honolulu. Ala Moana Center is open, with safety measures in place at its hundreds of shops and restaurants. Browse luxury brand boutiques and big-name department stores, all under one roof.

Waiola Shave Ice

Head to Waiola in Honolulu for the best shave ice in Oahu — yes, that’s shave, not shaved ice. The best way to beat the heat is to take this classic treat to-go from either of Waiola’s two locations in downtown Honolulu.
