The most high profile and populated concentration in the state, Honolulu is vastly different from any other town on the island. It consists of a bustling urban strip, skyscrapers, and vast resorts, all crammed along the Waikiki beach.
King Street is lined with tall buildings in the narrow strip of land that is downtown. Most of the city’s activity takes place here, amidst the traffic and the crowds. The resorts at the heart of the city are elaborate, but seem to somehow interact with Hawaii’s pristine natural beauty. It is a clean place, minus the congestion of cars, and the tides gently slink up and down the long line of beaches.
It is no wonder this was the chosen site for Hawaii’s capital and forward thinking epicenter. Honolulu is more beautiful and modern than most mainland cities.
