Pearl Harbor: A Historic RemembranceNo trip to Honolulu is complete without a trip to the Pearl Harbor site. A revered name in US history, Pearl Harbor is the site of where the bombing took place in December of 1941, which led the US into WW II. Although a somber day in US history, today Pearl Harbor serves as a memorial where visitors can come reflect and remember the historic events, as well as an active military base. Located on the island of Oahu, this historic landmark is home to four unique attractions from the famed day. The USS Arizona, whose bombing was the catalyst that propelled the US into WWII, the USS Missouri, where the Japanese formally surrendered, SS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park, and Pacific Aviation Museum which is filled with exhibits and artifacts. There are tours available daily, where you can learn about "Mighty Mo's" wartime history and see a signed copy of the surrender document that ended the war. Don't miss the USS Oklahoma Memorial, a monument to those who lost their lives in the attack on Pearl Harbor. While it's possible to visit all four sites of Pearl Harbor in one visit, plan on spending about 8 hours doing so.
