There is a lot of hustle and bustle, since a lot of business is conducted in the city. Just a walk around the city will make you fall in love with this place. It has several districts which are famous for culture, business, arts… etc
Other than walking around and spending time on the sandy beaches, you can do a number of other activities, which would engage the entire family. For example, a trip to the Honolulu Zoological Society may be a good option. It is huge and has around 995 different species of animals, including (but not limited to) Komodo Dragons, reptiles, birds etc. The zoo opens early in the morning, around 9:00 AM, so you can go there anytime and enjoy. The admission fee is $8 which is affordable. They also have memberships available, which if you avail then you can get privileges like free admission, discounts at snack bars etc. This zoo is the largest zoo in Hawaii, so you should definitely visit this.
Other than the Zoo, another great place to visit is the Waikiki Aquarium which is only located within a short walking distance from the zoo. This aquarium is pretty old as it was constructed in 1904. More than 2500 organisms can be seen her. The place gets a lot of visitors and it is believed that more than 350,000 visit the Waikiki Aquarium, each year!
For history and culture lovers, the Bishop Museum can be a great treat. The museum contains the world’s largest collection of artifacts from Hawaii and the Pacific. You may need to take a ride to get here because it is not very close to the zoo or the aquarium. The public transportation of Honolulu is quite efficient, so arriving places should not be a problem.
