Diamond Head Theatre

Attraction | "The Diamond Head Theatre"

Quote:
The Diamond Head Theatre is a small, community theatre that has hosted some of the most well known actors/actresses both on Broadway and off-Broadway. The Diamond Head Theatre has been nicknamed by locals as the Broadway of the Pacific.

We saw the stage production of "Titanic" while we were there and we were very impressed with it. It was an enjoyable atmosphere and the ticket prices were very reasonable. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't judge a book by its cover.

Stars and Stripes Tour

Attraction | "The Stars and Stripes Tour"

The Stars and Stripes tour takes you through the USS Arizona, USS Missouri, and the Punchbowl Cemetery. It was a very educational and patriotic tour. Anyone who likes American history should go to this tour. The cost was very inexpensive at $30 for all three tours.
