Oahu is full of amazing beaches, rainforests, urban centers, cultural attractions, and more. But if you only have time to visit one region of the island, you have to check out Hawaii’s capital city of Honolulu. Located on the southeastern portion of the island, Honolulu offers something for everyone. With a car rental from ABC Auto Center, you can experience all that Honolulu has to offer in comfort and style.
Live It Up in Waikiki
Honolulu is home to one of the most famous beaches in the entire world: Waikiki. For the iconic Hawaiian experience, nestle into one of the area’s luxurious resorts and enjoy world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment. And Waikiki’s waters are generally calm, making it a great spot for beginners to learn how to surf. As an added bonus, the Honolulu Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium make Honolulu the perfect playground for families.
Trek Diamond Head State Monument
After you’ve enjoyed the action in Waikiki, head to Diamond Head to experience one of Hawaii’s most famous landmarks. Diamond Head is only a few miles east of Waikiki and is easily accessible by car or bus. To reach the top of the monument, hikers must traverse two flights of stairs and several underground tunnels and old military bunkers. At the summit, hikers are rewarded with a panoramic view of the city.
Enjoy the City
Honolulu is packed with culture, cuisine, and entertainment. History buffs will enjoy a leisurely walking tour of the city’s capitol building, the governor’s mansion, and city hall. Iconic landmarks like Iolani Palace, the King Kamehameha I statue, and the Aloha Tower are also easily accessible. When you’ve finished your tour, take a quick drive down Kapahulu Avenue for some of the best eats on the island. Whether you want fast food, fine dining, or ethnic cuisine, Kapahulu will not disappoint.
