hlulu Honolulu , on the island o Oahu, is the capital and largest city o the state o Hawaii. It is the center o government, government, transportation, and commerce or the state, and home to its  best known tourist destination, Waikiki Beach. understand Honolulu is a thriving city, with beaches that draw crowds rom around the world. The name Honolulu means “sheltered   bay” in Hawaiian, and its natural harbor catapulted this  IMG_9491r-v humble village on the (Correct caption to be inserted) southern shore o the island o Oahu to importance when, in 1809, 1809, King Kamehameha I moved his royal royal court rom the island o Hawaii Hawaii to Oahu. Its ideally located port made Honolulu a perect stop or merchant ships traveling between North America and Asia.

Eventually, in 1845, Kamehameha III ocially moved the kingdom’s kingdom’s capital rom Lahaina on Maui Maui to Honolulu. At the same time, descendants o missionaries mi ssionaries who arrived in the early 1800s established their headquarters in Honolulu, making it the center o business. The late 1800s and early early 1900s saw the overthrow o the Hawaiian monarchy, annexation by the United States, and an attack by the Japanese on nearby Pearl Harbor,  but Honolulu’s stature never wavered. Today, with nearly one million people in its metropolitan area (80% o the state’s population), Honolulu is the cultural, industrial, commercial, and governmental center o Hawaii, with Waikiki Waikiki Beach the epicenter o the tourist industry. industry. This is denitely not the place to go or a “get-away-rom-it-all” Hawaiian vacation. It is as ast-paced and dynamic as any city,

The best way to get to Waikiki by rental car (where your hotel is most likely to be) is to ollow signs or H-1 east, then ollow H-1 east about 2 miles to exit 18A (Waikiki/Nimitz Highway).

Because it is dicult to dierentiate north and south on an island, directions are normally given given in terms o local landmarks. The most common terms that you will run into are mauka (MOWkah) meaning “toward the mountain” and makai (mah-KIE) meaning “toward “toward the sea”. In the case o Honolulu, Honolulu, which which is located on Oahu’s south shore, “mauka” is a rough north, and “makai” roughly roughly south. You will also hear Ewa Ewa (EH-vah) (EH-vah) and Diamond Head used a lot, in relation to downtown Honolulu, the ormer roughly means “west” (toward the town o Ewa on the southwest shore o Oahu) and the latter roughly means “east” (toward the amous landmark crater on the southeast shore).

Trac in Honolulu, and on Oahu in general, is a persistent problem. With almost one million people living living in a relatively relatively small space, and only a ew main routes serving the major populated areas on the island, a single trac incident has the potential to induce gridlock across the entire island. The likelihood o such trac jams is relatively low, but someone  visiting Oahu and traveling during a weekday should be aware o trac problems. Normal weekda weekday y rush rush hour in Honolulu Honolulu is 6 to 8 a.m. going inbound and 4 to 7 p.m. going outbound. Expect heavy trac on Interstates H-1 and H-2, Nimitz Highway/ Ala Moana Boulevard, and the surace streets in downtown Honolulu and Waikiki. Trac is less heavy during during the summer and over the holidays when the University o Hawaii at Manoa is is not in session.

Once you get a little ways inland the trac is not too bad and in the agricutural areas, there is little trac.

In the Hawaiian language, Honolulu means “sheltered bay” or “place o shelter.” It lies along the southeast coast o the island o  Oahu and o the City & County o Honolulu.

At the same time, Honolulu became the center o commerce in the Islands, with descendants o American missionaries establishing major  businesses in downtown Honolulu.

The average daily low and high temperatures in January are 65/80 °F (18/27 °C) and in July are 74/88 °F (23/31 °C).
