We basically fell across this area when walking from the Iolani Palace to the Aloha Tower. Not really that much to see other than the odd old boat, which isn't open to the public. Not worth going out of your way for in my opinion.

Went to Pearl Harbour and they cancelled the trip over to the Arizona. What a disappointment, came all the way from Niagara Falls Ontario and didn't get there because it was a little windy. The thing is, this was a once in a life time and we won't be going back.

Where do I begin. This place is touched by angles. It is so serene. The museum is very interesting. I'm into history, so I loved it. The gardens are beautiful. The oil still seeps from the USS Missouri. I'm sure that is the name. This is a grave, so it is very intense. It was well worth seeing. My father... More

This is the old harbor next to the old town. There are a bunch of old fishing boats and utility boats along with the old sailing ship. Neat place to see.

The rest of the complex is closed for redevelopment, except for a couple of the restaurants, but do go see the views of the harbor from the top of the Aloha Tower. The elevator is free, and you can see the whole area from three directions. If you are downtown, it's just a few minutes walk away.

Just as the Statue... More

When in Hawaii you need to go down to Honolulu Harbor, there or some nice shopping right by the harbor and lots of good eats, if you have a car park at mall (free) and walk around it a great time.

A weekend visit here is best begun at the crack of dawn! Park at the harbor stalls and walk to the nearby Aloha Tower Marketplace, Chinatown, and Restaurant Row. These three areas will be a whole day's worth of viewing some of Hawaii's multitude of cultures. Save room for food, because you will be able to experience some of the... More

We were in Honolulu for one day after taking NCL cruise around the islands. We used this service as a private guide and ride to the airport later in the day. Shane, the driver/enthusiastic owner was fantastic. He was prompt, professional and very knowledgable about the island both the city and north shore. We were tight on time so it... More

As they are shutting down the market place it was very quiet when I was here, but the observation deck is well worth a visit with great views of downtown Honolulu
