Hawaii’s scenery is captivating and you’re going to find many moments during your trip in which you’re awestruck at the island’s beauty. From the white sand beaches to the towering Ko’olau Mountains, the island of Oahu is one of the most stunning places in Hawaii, and perhaps even the world. There are so many notable landmarks and places to see that you can easily fill an entire vacation with sightseeing. Of course, there are many great things to do around the island, and as much fun as sightseeing is, you probably want to do more than seeing the sites. There are many great Oahu attractions to see during your trip that allow for more than sightseeing; these sites are places that you can explore and take part in fun things to do.
Dole Pineapple Plantation
A great place to spend a few hours before an evening activity like an Oahu Luau, the Dole Pineapple Plantation is dedicated to the #1 fruit that is associated with Hawaii: the pineapple! Spend your time at Dole exploring the grounds and learning about the pineapple production that came from Hawaii for so many years. The gift shop feature delicious treats that are made with locally grown pineapples, and you can even pick up a pre-packaged pineapple for shipping home.
North Shore Beaches
Of all the places on Oahu that are likely to make you want to pack up and move, the North Shore will be at the top of the list. Visitors to the North Shore fall in love with the easy going way of life, the famous surf beaches, scenic beauty, and the quaint towns that dot the coast. Some choose to stay along the North Shore, while others make a couple of trips up here for a day or two on the beach, and fun activities.
Scenic Lookout Points
As you make your way around Oahu, you’ll notice that there are many places around the island to pull over and soak it all in. The easiest way to encounter most of these is to take a Sightseeing Tour, but if you choose to take a trip around the island on your own, these lookout points are easy to find. Just pull over, grab your camera or phone, and be sure to take in the views with your own eyes. Scenic lookout points include the Halona Blowhole Lookout, Makapu’u Lookout, and the famous Pali Lookout, just to name a few.
Historic Downtown Honolulu
While visiting the downtown district of a city might not seem so exciting at first, once you’ve uncovered the history of historic downtown Honolulu, your mind will be changed. This part of Oahu is where the hustle and bustle of the workweek takes place, and is also the home to many significant structures that date back hundreds of years. See Iolani Palace, Kawaiahao Church, Missions Houses, Washington Place, and Ali’iolani Hale, plus the statue of King Kamehameha the Great during a visit to the historic district.
