There's heaps to do in downtown Honolulu day or night. Walmart is conveniently located centrally then most other chain stores can be found around it. Has a safe feeling to it.

For $15 the American Institute of Architects,Hawaii, offers the best walking tour for your buck. You have to book in advance, it will be well worth your while. Don't forget to bring your camera. http://www.aiahonolulu.org/?WalkingTours

Downtown Honolulu is wonderful. It is filled with tourist and local alike soaking in the island vibes. Lots of cool shops, hip restaurants, coffee joints and bars. Pretty safe if you stay on the main thoroughfare. Must visit!

Sorry to say Waikiki one of the charms of the main street is no longer the same since big business has pushed The International Market Place is no longer there, just new regular stores or building took away the popular selling and bargaining experience. Once again the almighty dollar wins again

I love coming to this place, there are street performers. There is always a nice bar to pop into for a drink, always a nice place to eat at and a perfect sandy beach to duck into for a swim, and to top it all off, plenty of attractions to visit. Would could be better.

We first visited Honolulu about 16 years ago. Walking around downtown was great fun then. There were native Hawaiian crafters back then. We decided to return with our youngest child. Now this looks like every other shopping district-what a shame. I can visit shopping districts anywhere I don't need to fly to Hawaii to do so. I can honestly say... More

A downtown is a downtown anywhere! I traveled to Hawaii for the tropical feel, beautiful beaches, yummy food and sunshine! If you want a crowd, lots of young bar hoppers, car fumes and noise visit downtown but it doesn't feel like Hawaii to me! Stay away from the city and see the real Hawaii.
