United States Atlas > Travel Photos | Honolulu
Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii. The city is located on Oahu, the
third-largest of the lush, tropical Hawaiian Islands. Sports and
leisure activities revolve around the islands' natural beauty.
World-famous Waikiki Beach borders the Pacific Ocean just minutes south
of Honolulu's center. The thrilling Triple Crown of Surfing is held
at three different beaches on Oahu. Picturesque golf courses dot
the island within easy driving distance of the capital. Honolulu is
also a center of culture and history, boasting a range of attractions from
Iolani Palace, the only royal palace in the United States, to a vibrant
downtown. The city is adjacent to Pearl Harbor, site of the infamous
Japanese attack that drew the United States into World War II. The
harbor borders Honolulu International Airport, the primary access point
for the island. This, Hawaii's main airport, serves as a central
jumping-off point for travel within the island chain.
