In order to properly detail the incredible sights to be experience along one of these tours, this guide has been written in three parts. Below are the first three most popular tourist destination stops on Oahu. Let’s cover them in detail:
Pearl Harbor USS Arizona Memorial- The USS Arizona Memorial is hands down the most visited location in all of Hawaii. Every year, millions of guests pay their respects at this sacred resting place. The memorial is only accessible by boat, and hovers directly over the remnants of the ship without ever actually touching it. While contemplating the memorial, tourists will gaze upon the constant flow of oil from the ships shattered hull-This is commonly referred to as the “Black Tears of the Arizona”.
Pearl Harbor USS Oklahoma Memorial- This incredible memorial is dedicated specifically to the 429 brave men and women who lost their lives aboard the USS Oklahoma, which was sunk during the Pearl Harbor assault on December 7th, 1941. Although the ship was salvaged, it never saw a return to service. It was instead scrapped for vital parts, and distributed throughout the island of Hawaii. The memorial features black granite walls to symbolize the hull of the ship, while white marble pillars stand proud and tall like those who lost their lives aboard it.
Pearl Harbor Visitor Center- Few locations in the world are as full of World War II historical significance as the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. Guests will experience amazing museums, watch a documentary of live WWII footage, and even meet some of the last remaining Pearl Harbor survivors. This is truly a once in a lifetime adventure you won’t want to miss.
