Honolulu is the capital city of Hawaii, the United States. Honolulu means "hidden bay" or "shelter peace". Honolulu's population is 377,260 people and population of cities and Honolulu districts and is estimated to be 900,000, respectively. This is the largest capital and city of Hawaii.
Honolulu stretches inland from the southeast Oahu coast, east of Pearl Harbor to Makapu'u, and combines lots of towns and neighborhoods. You will often hear people refer to districts called Waikiki, Manoa, Kahala, Kai and so — as if they're not in the same city. Technically, they are. In fact, the government of Honolulu is composed of all of Oahu Island, including the suburbs beyond its center.

Honolulu is a big U.S. south pole. Although the name "Honolulu" is the urban area on the southeast coast of Oahu Island, the city and district governments as well as the city and Honolulu districts, including the entire island. For statistical purposes, the U.S. Census Bureau recognizes that part of the city of Honolulu is the one-size population census. Honolulu is a major financial center of the Pacific Isles, and the largest South-West city. The population of the CDP was 371,657 at the 2000 Census, while the population of the city and the district was 909,863, making it 57 major urban areas in the United States. Honolulu is also the most populous state capital in the state's population. In Hawaiian language, Honolulu means "a temporary bay" or "shelter." Honolulu is the capital of the Hawaiian Islands since 1845 and has been recognized as a historic monument to Japan's attack in Pearl Harbor near December 7, 1941.
History of history
It's called Honolulu, which means "shelter bay" or "peace" in Hawaiian language, and its natural port has brought this village modest to importance as King KamehaMameha I moves his crown from Hawaii to Oahu in 1809, right after defeating Oahu to unite the Hawaiian Islands. Finally, in 1845, KamehaMameha III officially moved the kingdom from Lahaina on Maui to Honolulu.
The port, located in Honolulu's ideal location, causes the city to be a perfect stop for transport ships between North America and Asia, and through the 1800s, descendants of missionaries to the beginning of the 1800s made a core headquarters in Honolulu, which made it the hub of firms and major ports in Hawaii's. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Hawaiian monarchy regime was overthrown and forwarded by the United States. Under U.S. governance, Honolulu witnessed the rise of the first ever hotel and tourism industry in Waikiki. The U.S. military also built many bases in the islands, including Pearl Harbor nearby. Pearl Harbor was later renowned for the surprise attacks of Japan in 1941, bringing the United States to World War II in the Pacific.
The U.S. state of membership in islands brings rapid economic growth to Honolulu, with all major state-owned enterprises headquartered in the city, Honolulu Airport as the tourist destination, and Waikiki is the hub of the tourism industry of the island.
ClimateHonolulu has a very mild climate, has very little change in temperature during the year - a height of 80-90° F (27-32°C) and an average of 65-75°F (19-24°C) any time of the year. The average temperature of the water is 82°F (27°C) in the summer months and 77°F (25°C) in the winter months.
The only remarkable change in the seasons was in the amount of rain. Honolulu is in the sun, under the wind of the island, and where you are in the city, it's going to affect the chances of rain — areas like Waikiki, the center of the city, and the west side of the city will often be sunny, while the eastern or the east hills of the city can get some of the clouds over and a very short rainfall. On average, Honolulu received less than half an inch of rain in the summer months to nearly three inches in the winter months.
Honolulu International Airport (English) Honolulu InternationalAirport (IATA: HNL, ICAO: PHNL) is a major air port of the U.S. state of Honolulu and Honolulu County, which is one of the busiest airports in the United States.
The Airport, March 1927, the John Rodgers, Honolulu International Airport is the hub of Hawaiian Airlines and Aloha Airlines, the two largest airlines located in Hawaii. The airport serves flights from Hawaii to the U.S., Asia and Pacific. Due to its central location in the Pacific, Honolulu in history has been a stop for flights to North America. However, today many long-range planes have flown straight without stopping at this airport except for flights from Australia to Canada.
Travel in town
Of course, when most tourists think about the beaches here, they think of the famous Waikiki beaches. As the tourist center of the Hawaiian Islands, this beach is white, framed by the hotel and Diamond Head as the foundation, which can be the easiest. Waikiki is a common place for a large crowd, because it's a great place to swim, sunbathe, catamaran and Outrigger, as well as a wonderful place for surfers and new surfers to begin (and there are many new schools that teach surfing in Waikiki). Notably, even in Waikiki, you can find a pretty quiet beach, which is about knowing where to look. But if you really need to get out of the crowd, there's a lot of other beaches. West only, near the Mall, is Ala Moana Park, a green space with many trees and grasses as well as a beautiful sand beach is common to local people and perfect for families or more calm swimming.
The area around Makapu'u Point in East Honolulu, there are some of the most common, wonderful, Hanauma Bay, built in the crater of a sleeping volcano, that is now open to sea and full of coral. This is not a good place for a swim and certainly not a place for surfing, but the abundance of marine life makes it a great place for swimming and diving. Even if you don't jump into the water, the landscape makes it a great place to take a sunbath or a picnic, although you can find a parking space as a problem.
Right near Hanauma Bay is the Vung Halona Beach, called "The Place To Look." It's a puddle, it's got a good swim when it's still around, but without rescue workers here, it's your own risk. Sandy Beach has no rescue workers, and it's been popular with the surfer and surfing for decades. On a calm day, it could be good for a happy day of swimming. Makapu'u Beach, just a little further on the road, pretty much a scenic spot. It tends to have huge waves, which means it may not be the best place to swim but a great place to surf.
