Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii, America's 50th state. Located on the island of Oahu, Honolulu is also the largest city in Hawaii and home to around two-thirds of the state's population.

Honolulu is home to Waikiki, Pearl Harbor, the only royal palace in America, and much more. From sugar plantations to Don Ho to the television show Lost, the city boasts a remarkable history.

The city is relatively modern, with the problems of much of the rest of the world- traffic, over-development, noise. Bounded by the mountains in the middle of the island and the ocean around, Honolulu is remarkably warm year-round. The University of Hawaii, Aloha Stadium, Diamond Head mountain all have a place within (or right outside) the city.

Honolulu International Airport is a major hub for flights between the East and West- located about 8 miles from the city center, most visitors will start and end their journeys here.

While visiting, whether you're here for a hula lesson or the excellent beaches, make sure you get out of Waikiki- there is much more to Honolulu (and Hawaii).
