Pearl Harbor Tours for the Family
For many parents, vacation time can also be a time for children to explore new places and learn new things. While on vacation to a different state or country, they can learn about history and culture that may not be available to them in the classroom. A trip to Hawaii, for example, can be the perfect opportunity to introduce your family to the unique culture of Hawaii as well as Hawaii’s important place in American history. With Discover Hawaii Tours, you can treat your family to incredible Pearl Harbor Tours which will introduce them to rich American history.
A unique cultural experience awaits your family on the Pearl Harbor and Polynesian Cultural Center with Luau Show tour with Discover Hawaii Tours.

This tour includes a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial, the memorial which now stands to honor the fallen from the attacks on Pearl Harbor. Also on this tour, you’ll be treated to a glimpse of Oahu’s famous North Shore Beaches.
