Hawaii is often associated with the tropical sun, beautiful beaches and food but your visit to this paradise will be incomplete until you visit the Pearl Harbor. A place where the echoes of history can still be felt, the sunken ships can still be seen and decommissioned battleships can be strolled upon.
Pearl Harbor is among the most popular places in Hawaii and provides an immensely moving experience filled with powerful and emotional moments. At Pearl Harbor you can visit different memorials, museums, and historical places present here, each one recounting a hair-raising story from the history. President Franklin Roosevelt said at the time “December 7, 1941 – a date that will live in infamy – the United States was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.” Thousands of visitors all around the world still come here to pay respect and recall the sacrifices given by our soldiers.

Close to it is the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park where you can climb aboard the Bowfin and experience the feelings of those valiant soldiers who had been there in the WWII. The Battleship Missouri Memorial which is often called the “Mighty Mo,” is extraordinary historical bookend to the US campaign in the Pacific because it was where the war had ceased.
