Honolulu (/ˌhoʊnoʊˈluːluː/; Hawaiian: Honolulu) is the state capital and the most populous city in the U.S.
state of Hawaii.</ref> It is the county seat of the City and County of Honolulu. Hawaii is a major tourist
destination and Honolulu, situated on the island of Oahu, is the main gateway to Hawaii and a major gateway into
the United States. 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 both the westernmost and the southernmost major American city. For statistical purposes, the U.S.
Census Bureau recognizes the approximate area commonly referred to as "City of Honolulu" (not to be confused
with the "City and County") as a census county division (CCD). Honolulu is a major financial center of the islands
and of the Pacific Ocean. The population of Honolulu CCD was 390,738 at the 2010 census, while the population of
the consolidated city and county was 953,207.
In the Hawaiian, Honolulu means "sheltered bay" or "place of shelter"Wikipedia:Citation needed; alternatively, it
means "calm port". 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 December 7, 1941.

Evidence of the first settlement of Honolulu by the original Polynesian
migrants to the archipelago comes from oral histories and artifacts.
These indicate that there was a settlement where Honolulu now stands
in the 11th century. However, after Kamehameha I conquered Oʻahu in
the Battle of Nuʻuanu at Nuʻuanu Pali, he moved his royal court from
the Island of Hawaiʻi to Waikīkī in 1804. His court relocated in 1809 to
what is now downtown Honolulu. The capital was moved back to
Kailua-Kona in 1812.
In 1794, Captain William Brown of Great Britain was the first
foreigner to sail into what is now Honolulu Harbor. More foreign ships
followed, making the port of Honolulu a focal point for merchant ships
traveling between North America and Asia.

In 1845, Kamehameha III moved the permanent capital of the
Hawaiian Kingdom from Lahaina on Maui to Honolulu. He and the
kings that followed him transformed Honolulu into a modern capital,
erecting buildings such as St. Andrew's Cathedral, ʻIolani Palace, and
Aliʻiōlani Hale. At the same time, Honolulu became the center of
commerce in the islands, with descendants of American missionaries
establishing major businesses in downtown Honolulu.
Despite the turbulent history of the late 19th century and early 20th
century, such as the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893,
Hawaiʻi's subsequent annexation by the United States in 1898,
followed by a large fire in 1900, and the Japanese attack on Pearl
Harbor in 1941, Honolulu remained the capital, largest city, and main
airport and seaport of the Hawaiian Islands.

as of 2007, 7.6 million visitors annually to the islands, with 62.3%
entering at Honolulu International Airport. Today, Honolulu is a modern city with numerous high-rise buildings, and
Waikīkī is the center of the tourism industry in Hawaiʻi, with thousands of hotel rooms. The UK consulting firm
Mercer, in a 2009 assessment "conducted to help governments and major companies place employees on
international assignments", ranked Honolulu 29th worldwide in quality of living; the survey factored in political
stability, personal freedom, sanitation, crime, housing, the natural environment, recreation, banking facilities,
availability of consumer goods, education, and public services including transportation.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total
area of 68.4 square miles (177.2 km2). 60.5 square miles (156.7 km2)
of it is land, and 7.9 square miles (20.5 km2) of it (11.56%) is water.

The closest location on the mainland to Honolulu is the Point Arena
Lighthouse in California, at 2,045 nautical miles (3,787 km).
(Nautical vessels require some additional distance to circumnavigate
Makapuʻu Point.) However, part of the Aleutian Islands of Alaska are
slightly closer to Honolulu than the mainland.

Honolulu experiences a tropical semi-arid climate (Köppen classification Bsh), with a mostly dry summer season,
due to a rain shadow effect. Temperatures vary little throughout the months, with average high temperatures of
80–90 °F (27–32 °C) and average lows of 65–75 °F (18–24 °C) throughout the year. Temperatures reach or exceed
90 °F (32 °C) on an average 38 days annually, with lows in the upper 50s °F (14–15 °C) occurring once or twice a
year. The highest recorded temperature was 95 °F (35 °C) during a heat wave in September 1998. The highest
recorded temperature in the state was also recorded later that day in Ni'ihau. The lowest recorded temperature was
52 °F (11 °C) on February 16, 1902, and January 20, 1969.
Annual average rainfall is 17.05 in (433 mm), which mainly occurs during the winter months of October through
early April, with very little rainfall during the summer. Honolulu has an average of 278 sunny days and 90 wet days
per year. Although Honolulu is known to have a wet and dry season, it is unnoticeable. This is mainly because light
showers fall in the summer while heavier rain falls during the winter. Yet, both seasons experience the same amount
of rainy days.
Although the city is situated in the upper tropics, hurricanes are quite rare. The last recorded hurricane that hit the
area was Category 4 Hurricane Iniki in 1992. Tornadoes are also uncommon and usually strike once every 15 years.
Waterspouts off the coast are also uncommon, hitting about once every five years.
Honolulu falls under the USDA 12a Plant Hardiness zone.

congestion, beating former record holder Los Angeles. Drivers waste
on average over 58 hours per year on congested roadways. The
following freeways, part of the Interstate Highway System serve Honolulu:
Honolulu International Airport old control tower
Interstate H-1, which, coming into the city from the west,
passes Hickam Air Force Base and Honolulu International Airport,
runs just north of Downtown and continues eastward through
Makiki and Kaimuki, ending at Waialae/Kahala. H-1 connects to
Interstate H-2 from Wahiawa and Interstate H-3 from Kaneohe,
west of the CDP.
Interstate H-201—also known as the Moanalua Freeway and
sometimes numbered as its former number, Hawaii State Rte.
78—connects two points along H-1: at Aloha Stadium and Fort
Shafter. Close to H-1 and Aloha Stadium, H-201 has an exchange
with the western terminus of Interstate H-3 to the windward side of
Oahu (Kaneohe). This complex of connecting ramps, some directly
between H-1 and H-3, is in Halawa.
• H2 - connects H1 with the Mililani area in the center of the island.
• H3 - connects H1 with the Kaneohe (windward) side of the island.

Main article: Honolulu High-Capacity Transit Corridor Project
Currently, there is no urban rail transit system in Honolulu, although electric street railways were operated in
Honolulu by the now-defunct Honolulu Rapid Transit Company prior to World War II. Predecessors to the Honolulu
Rapid Transit Company were the Honolulu Rapid Transit and Land Company (began 1903) and Hawaiian Tramways
The City and County of Honolulu is currently constructing a 20-mile (32 km) rail transit line that will connect
Honolulu with cities and suburban areas near Pearl Harbor and in the Leeward and West Oahu regions. The
Honolulu High-Capacity Transit Corridor Project is aimed at alleviating traffic congestion for West Oahu commuters
while being integral in the westward expansion of the metropolitan area. The project, however, has been criticized by
opponents of rail for its cost, delays, and potential environmental impacts, but the line is expected to have large
