Southwest Airlines is proud to serve Daniel K. Inouye International Airport.

When you deplane in Honolulu, you’ll quickly see why the city was named “Sheltered Harbor” and “Calm Port." Now one of the most remote major cities in the world, Honolulu and the surrounding area are still home to awe-inspiring natural wonders. You’ll want to start your adventure in the Big Pineapple as soon as you step off the plane.

A trip to Hawaii would be incomplete without getting your fill of sun and sand. When your destination is Honolulu, you can’t go wrong by choosing Waikiki Beach as your oceanside site. Grab a beach blanket and some sunscreen and lay out for the day or take a surfing lesson with iconic Diamond Head as your background. If you find this popular beach too active for your style of sun worship, check out one of the other six beaches in the Waikiki neighborhood, which include Queen’s Beach and Kuhio Beach.

If you’d prefer to immerse yourself in the city itself, consider starting with the Hawaii Capital Historic District. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978, you can explore the grounds of Iolani Palace, St. Andrew’s Cathedral, and the Hawaii State Library. After exploring the past, see what the present has to offer with a visit to the Arts District. Art galleries and theaters abound in this neighborhood, so consider taking in a show during your visit.

Hungry for more Honolulu? Indulge in some traditional island cuisine. Hawaiian food is a distinctive combination of flavors brought to the islands by settlers and immigrants. Coconut, sweet potato, and taro root feature heavily, as do fish and other seafood. Of course, there are also dishes made of perhaps the most infamous brand of canned meat, which was first introduced to the Hawaiian islands by way of World War II soldiers’ rations. Try to get a taste of native dishes and new, modern Hawaiian cuisine during your visit.
