Honolulu, Hawaii

1 2 3 4

Located on the south shore of Honolulu, the world-famous neighborhood of Waikiki was once a playground for Hawaiian royalty. Today, Waikiki is Oahu’s main resort area and a vibrant gathering place for visitors from around the world. Waikiki is most famous for its beaches. With Leahi (Diamond Head) as your backdrop, the calm waters of Waikiki are perfect for a surfing lesson. In fact, legendary Hawaiian waterman Duke Kahanamoku grew up surfing the waves of Waikiki. This Olympic gold medalist in swimming actually taught visitors how to surf at the turn of the century and was later known as the “father of modern surfing.”

Today, the Waikiki Beach Boys perpetuate Duke’s legacy by teaching visitors how to surf and canoe and the Duke Kahanamoku Statue has become an iconic symbol of Waikiki. Attractions of Waikiki like the Honolulu Zoo and the Waikiki Aquarium offer fun for the whole family. You can learn about the history of Waikiki by reading the surfboard markers along the Waikiki Historical Trail.

Fantastic shopping and dining can be found all along Kalakaua and Kuhio Avenues and at gathering places like Royal Hawaiian Center and Waikiki Beach Walk. The fun keeps going long after the Waikiki sunset with amazing nightlife and live music. Best of all, Waikiki is within a half hour of a variety of Oahu attractions including Pearl Harbor, Iolani Palace, the Nuuanu Pali Lookout, and Hanauma Bay. Other notable points of interest nearby include Ala Moana Center, the local neighborhood of Kapahulu, and the arts district of Chinatown.
