Honolulu offers a myriad of beautiful tourist destinations to discover. Drive up to the historic landmark Pearl Harbor and plan a visit to Iolani Palace, the only royal palace on American soil, as well as the Queen Emma Summer Palace. A must-see spot is the famous Waikiki beach with its lively beach scenes and pulsating nightlife at the beach promenade. Make sure to plan a trip to Diamond Head, a dormant volcano that offers a spectacular view of Honolulu. Another highlight is the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve which is a protected marine life conservation area that lets you discover fish, sea turtles and other wildlife.
If you want to explore the winding coastal roads, an SUV is a good choice. For driving within the city of Honolulu itself, Compact, Economy and Midsize cars are ideal. Or consider renting a Convertible if you want to drive from beautiful beach to beautiful beach.
All Hawaiian Islands have a speed limit of 55 to 60 mph on freeways, as these roads are often winding and difficult to navigate. On the freeways that run through central Honolulu, 45 mph is the limit.
Once you are outside of tourist hot spots like Waikiki, there are several opportunities for free unlimited streetside parking. Or, choose a parking garage with daily fees in order to avoid overtly expensive hourly costs.
