Honolulu is famous not only for laid-back Hawaiian style and gorgeous beaches, but also as the location of the attack on Pearl Harbor, which visitors can learn about at the Pearl Harbor National Memorial. To explore the wilderness of Honolulu, the grand Iolani Palace and Nuʻuanu Pali mountain are also well worth a visit, while a Helicopter tour is a must for unrivalled views of land and sea.
