Waikiki, Hawaii: Luxurious Honolulu Neighborhood with White-Sand Beaches on the Pacific
Once a private playground for Hawaii’s ruling class, the neighborhood of Waikiki now welcomes visitors from all over the world to dazzling shores on the southern edge of Honolulu. Though many come for the surfing and sunbathing, there’s also world-class dining, nightlife, and shopping along the main strip of Kalakaua Avenue. One section of the strip is nicknamed Luxury Row for its collection of upscale boutiques.
Traveling southbound on Kalakaua leads you to the expansive Honolulu Zoo, a habitat for exotic and endangered species. Sumatran tigers make their home in a private cat lair, potbellied pigs galumph in the children’s zoo, and white-handed gibbons practice trust falls on a ropes course. Head a little farther south for both indoor and outdoor music at the Neal S. Blaisdell Center and the Waikiki Shell.
