Pearl Harbor

We are staying at the Hilton Hawaiin Village and I need to know the best way to see Pearl Harbor without booking a tour?

Take the bus over and back. It will cost $2.50 and runs every 20 or 30 minutes. I believe you want the #42 and it will take less than an hour and you can sight see some of downtown on the way.

If you like, get off and see Chinatown on the return as well.

Make sure you do not carry any bags like backpacks, camera, purses, etc. You can not take them in.

You should make reservations ahead of time for tickets and be there an hour before your ticket time.

Have a great trip.

If you are not renting a car, take the bus. #20 or #42 will go to the Pearl Harbor Visitors Center with no need to transfer.

You can make reservations for USS Arizona Memorial for $1.50 each:


You can also tour USS Missouri and/or USS Bowfin and/or Pacific Aviation Museum. You can get these tickets when you get to the visitors center.
