About Honolulu

Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii and the most populous city in the state. It is the county seat of the city and county of Honolulu on the island of Oahu. Honolulu is the main gateway to Hawaii and the United States. The largest city and airport in the Hawaiian Islands, Honolulu acts as a natural gateway to the islands' large tourism industry, which brings millions of visitors and contributes $10 billion annually to the local economy. Honolulu's location in the Pacific also makes it a large business and trading hub, particularly between the East and the West.  Other important aspects of the city's economy include military defense, research and development, and manufacturing. The city is also a major hub for international business, military defense, as well as famously being host to a diverse variety of east-west and Pacific culture, cuisine, and traditions. Honolulu is the most remote city of its size in the world and is both the westernmost and the southernmost major U.S. city. Honolulu is a major financial center of the islands and of the Pacific Ocean. The population of the city of Honolulu was 337,256 as of the 2010 census, while the population of the consolidated city and county of Honolulu was 953,207. Waikiki is best known for its famous white sand beach. It is an international destination and one of the most frequented locations in all of Hawaii. Over the centuries, Waikiki has been an area where people come to both play and relax.

Honolulu means “sheltered harbor” or “calm port,” in the Hawaiian language, and with its natural harbor. The old name is said to be Kou, a district roughly encompassing the area from Nuuanu Avenue to Alakea Street and from Hotel Street to Queen Street which is the heart of the present downtown district. The city has been the capital of the Hawaiian Islands since 1845 and gained historical recognition following the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japan near the city on Dec. 7, 1941.

Hawaii is a world of its own—exotic, mysterious, ancient and very much alive—and Honolulu is its beating heart. Hawaii is known for the tragic attack on Pearl Harbor, historical monuments, and the history of the Hawaiian royal family which can be explored at the Iolani Palace and the Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum. The island state also boasts spectacular nature that ranges from the volcanic craters of Diamond Head and Coco Crater to the endless beaches, including the famous Waikiki Beach.
