Pearl Harbor

Revisited

We decided to revisit Pearl Harbor while on Oahu for vacation. We decided to do the FREE Option, which includes:

  • Access to the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center
  • The Exhibit Galleries:  “Road to War” and “Attack”
  • Other Interpretive Exhibits throughout the Facility (i.e. USS Arizona Bell)
  • The Remembrance Circle (a tribute to the men, women and children; both military and civilian, who were killed as a result of the attack on December 7, 1941)
  • View of the USS Arizona Memorial

A very somber and humbling experience as you walk the grounds and explore the exhibits. A great learning experience to learn more about this important part of U.S. history.

Truly a Great Experience! Truly a Must See!


Oahu – 3rd Largest Island of the Hawaiian Islands

I visited Oahu in 2000 and it was a remarkable visit – still remember the highlights today.

Highlights

  • Honolulu (Waikiki Beach & Diamond Head)
  • Hanauma Bay (some R&R & snorkeling – the Toliet Bowl)


Sea Turtle at Hanauma Bay

  • Pearl Harbor (USS Arizona Memorial) [side note – the Pearl Harbor movie was being filmed the day of our visit]
  • Kane’ohe Bay (some R&R & ocean kayaking)


Kane’ohe Bay – Mokoli’i (Chinaman’s Hat)

  • North Shore (stopped at the Turtle Bay Resort, saw the beach where Baywatch was filmed)
  • Polynesian Cultural Center (to explore and be part of a Luau)

Visiting Oahu was an amazing experience and lucky for me on this trip I had one more island to see, Maui.
