Beach Park, are favorites for local families, and on rainy days children can enjoy the Hawaii Children's Discovery Center, which has interactive exhibits for preschool through elementary-aged children.
The square mile of ground around Waikiki Beach is the heart of Honolulu's vacation industry. This famous beach is well-known for its shopping, dining, and especially its watersports. You'll find many tributes to Duke Kahanamoku, the father of modern surfer, all around this area including a statue and milestones made out of surfboards. If you are looking for evening activities, the Waikiki Beach walk has abundant entertainment, music, and drinks for a night out with your friends before returning to your Honolulu timeshare.
Pearl Harbor is another top daytime attraction for Honolulu visitors and a National Historic Landmark. In addition to being an active military base with many WWII Memorials, it is the largest harbor in the city and a launching point for must-see tours of the USS Arizona and Ford Island's Pacific Aviation Museum. The USS Arizona Memorial, one of five sites making up the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument at Pearl Harbor, is the most-visited site in Honolulu and floats upon the sunken aircraft carrier which went down with 1,177 crew members, on December 7, 1941, during the Japanese attack.
Arts, Culture and More
Downtown Honolulu is filled with cultural, artistic, and historic sites. There are literally hundreds of shops and restaurants to browse through on the trolleys connecting major arteries of the city with Waikiki Beach where you can find anything from high fashion labels to authentic Hawaiian souvenirs. If you want to see more of the city and the ocean, you can climb to the top of the Aloha Tower which has a 360-degree viewing platform at the top floor and outdoor shopping and dining on the lower levels.
Iolani Palace is a top destination for anyone interested in Hawaiian history. It is a famous neoclassical structure and the former home of the last king of Hawaii, King Kalakaua. It later served as the state capitol building and now is a museum with many historical artifacts including the original throne, chandeliers, and facade.
Inevitably, the winter months are the most popular and busiest times to visit your Honolulu timeshare. Every year, as the weather grows cold on the mainland, families and adults flock to the warm beaches for a week of sunshine and relaxation, and usually remains busy until Easter. April, May, September, and October tend to be the least-crowded months in Honolulu, coming just after and just before the major crowds. The next busiest season is mainly during the summer when many families plan summer vacations in Hawaii, but fewer travelers overall than during the winter.
