Enjoy pickup from select Waikiki hotels in the morning, and head straight to Pearl Harbor and skip the line with priority access. At the visitor center, watch historical footage of the Japanese air attack that propelled the United States into World War II and view other wartime artifacts. Cross the harbor to reach the USS Arizona Memorial, a one-time battleship where 1,777 sailors lost their lives during the 1941 attack.
Pass the resting place of other soldiers on a drive through Punchbowl National Cemetery of the Pacific, and see Iolani Palace, the only royal residence that exists on US soil. Stop to take photos of King Kamehameha Statue, Kawaiahao Church, and other important Honolulu landmarks before being returned to your hotel.
