Hawaii’s "big city" Honolulu is an enchanting mix of old, new, high-end hotels and gritty back alleys, scattered in between incredible dream-like beaches. Many tourists confine themselves to the sparkling waters of Waikiki Beach
but that’s nowhere near all that the city has to offer: there’s the Pearl Harbor Memorial
and even the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve
,incidentally a destination where President Obama has been snorkeling.
