Oahu - Pearl Harbor
The World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument and the other Historic Sites at Pearl Harbor are the most-visited attractions in Hawaii. Convenient to the Waikiki resorts and the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport, Pearl Harbor is the site of one of the most horrific events in American History - the December 7, 1941 attack by the forces of Imperial Japan.
- The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center, offering historical exhibits and a theater showing a short film about the attack.
- The USS Arizona Memorial, built above the sunken battleship and reached by US Navy shuttle boat.
- The Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park, giving visitors a feel for life aboard a World War II submarine.
- The Battleship Missouri, site of the signing of the Japanese surrender documents at the end of the war.
Be sure to make a visit to Pearl Harbor part of your time in Honolulu; there are even inter-island tours available for guests staying on the other islands.
