Oahu is an island that has something for everyone, from beaches and hiking to museums and restaurants. No matter your interests, Oahu will have something for you.
Before you book your trip, let’s look at the top things to do while you’re there:
This popular, historic attraction offers so much to do and see that you’ll need an entire day just to fit it all in. To make sure you see it all, book a “Complete Pearl Harbor Tour Experience,” where a knowledgeable tour guide will take you around the entire national park to see the USS Arizona Memorial, USS Bowfin, USS Oklahoma Memorial, USS Missouri Battleship Museum, the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum’s hangars, and an incredible amount of the Pearl Harbor shoreline.
Make sure to book your tickets ahead of time, as Pearl Harbor is one of Oahu’s most popular tourist destinations.
Stretching for more than 7 miles along the north coastline of Oahu lives the North Shore. Home to beautiful stretches of beach and some of the biggest waves and surfing events in the world.
During the peak winter months (November – December), the North Shore hosts premier surfing competitions. It’s a great time to see the pros in action but, if you’re wanting to enjoy the waves, visit from May to September. During this time, the big waves have subsided, making the North Shore atmosphere a little more beginner friendly.
While surfing is a big draw for visitors, there are many other things you can do along the North Shore. Shopping, dining, hiking, and so much more, there’s something for everyone to experience and enjoy.
Polynesian Cultural Center
As you explore the North Shore, you’ll discover the Polynesian Cultural Center, an amazing 42 acres of Polynesian wonders that are waiting for you to experience.
Here, you’ll learn about and engage in the island cultures of Polynesia. You’ll get to encounter and interact with six different island nations and learn all about their heritage and culture.
From dining and shopping, to live entertainment and interactive games (hula dancing, hat making), the Polynesian Cultural Center is like nothing you’ve ever experienced.
The PCC is one of Oahu’s most popular attractions so make sure you book your trip in advance, so you can enjoy all the center has to offer.
These are just a few of all the amazing things Oahu has to offer. There’s an abundance of sites and adventures for everyone to experience and enjoy.
