If you’re planning a trip to the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is one travel destination that can’t be missed.
Oahu, also known as “The Gathering Place,” is only the third largest island in the Hawaiian Island chain, but it has the largest population. The southeast coast is home to the state capital, Honolulu, which is also the site of Honolulu International Airport.
Visitors to Oahu can enjoy several incredible Oahu tours that highlight the island’s rich history and cultural heritage.
The Pearl Harbor tour allows visitors to explore several major pieces of nautical history. USS Arizona tours allow visitors to pay their respects to the many people who died in the Japanese attack on December, 1941, and the USS Missouri tour crosses the decks of the ship that witnessed the end of World War II. The USS Bowfin submarine and the Pacific Aviation Museum on Ford Island are also included in most Pearl Harbor tours.
The Dole Plantation tour takes visitors through the working plantation that made pineapples one of Hawaii’s most important exports. The Plantation is home to the Pineapple Express, the world’s largest garden maze, and several gardens that are both beautiful and educational. At the end of the day, visitors are welcome to dine at the Plantation Grille.
For those with a less historical focus, Oahu is also home to several major shopping centers that tourists can peruse at their leisure. The natural scenery is also something to behold, and visitors should not miss out on the many beautiful beaches and surfing opportunities.
Visitors to Oahu can shop several types of package tours and customize their visit in a way that lets them see everything they want. Tours are a great way to see the island while getting insider knowledge from local tour guides. Whether you decide to see all of the island’s beaches or your more interested in every piece of the Pearl Harbor tour, a guide will get you everywhere you want to go.
