Walking Tours in Honolulu, Hawaii

Honolulu, capital of Hawaii – America's remotest island state located in the Pacific, is one of the country's most iconic tourist destinations. In large part this is due to the magnificent local dining, nightlife and shopping scene, complete with a marvelous beach lined with picturesque palms and high-rise hotels. Honolulu is also closely associated with the WWII history, namely the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941.

My Little Guide to Honolulu

this is a “little” guide to Honolulu; just a peak at some of my favorite parts of Honolulu. I want to also add that it’s ideal to get out of Waikiki and drive to North Shore for example to watch surfers and eat at the famous shrimp trucks, but as Ben and I were both there for work and I had to get my passports re-issued, we didn’t find the time.

In the 70 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor, a dramatic photo of female firefighters has been published many times in magazines, history books and online as a depiction of action on Dec. 7, 1941. We published it this past week on msnbc.com. Now, with the help of our readers, we've located one of the women, who says the photo was definitely not taken on that day.
