There are plenty of options to get you history fix while you are visiting Oahu. The obvious choice being Pearl Harbor is the number one attraction, which encompasses the Bowfin, the Arizona and the Missouri memorials. On your way back to town, you can stop by the punchbowl cemetery. Once you arrived back in Waikiki you can walk down to fort De Russy to the army museum. The next to days you can dedicate to Hawaiian history by visiting the historic buildings downtown and see how the royalty used to live. The following day spend some time at the Bishop Museum to get a more comprehensive understanding of Hawaii?s history. At that point it only makes sense to sample a bite of the local fare at Ono Hawaiian Foods. You may have seen it on the travel channel. Anthony Bourdain seemed to enjoy the ?grinds? (that?s the local word for food).
