Snap Guide: Honolulu

Honolulu hotels, Honolulu restaurants, Honolulu attractions

Just say the word "Honolulu" and immediately images of swaying palm trees on powdery white beaches come to mind. Honolulu has that and much more. Born of erupting volcanoes and sculpted by wind, rain, and waves, the magic of Hawaii calls to visitors from around the globe. Do tai chi at dawn, swim with rainbowed fish in the morning, buy a lei at lunch in Chinatown, kayak in the afternoon to an offshore bird sanctuary, and listen to the sweet sounds of Hawaiian slack-key guitar as the stars light up the night sky. Start here.
