Hike Diamond Head State Monument

Go hike Diamond Head crater, a 350-acre national park. Getting to the top is quite difficult (two sets of staircases with 75 and 99 stairs each) and may take a few hours, but it is well worth it. Once you get to the peak, you'll be able to see a panoramic view of Honolulu. There is also a 225-foot-long tunnel that may have any claustrophobic a little on edge, but if you can get over your fear you won't be disappointed, as it is a site not to be missed.

See a Movie Outdoors

Take a stroll along the Beach Walk, Waikiki's Kalakaua Boulevard. On a Saturday or Sunday night you can see a free movie, which is projected for the public on a 30-foot-tall screen. Get there early to get a good seat and enjoy the live music that plays 30 minutes before each screening. A outdoor movie is a true treat and if you've never had the experience, you should try it out at least once.
