USS Battleship Missouri
Once back on land, your tour takes you to the Battleship Missouri. This giant vessel is a true veteran, having served in WWII, the Korean War, and the Persian Gulf War before finally being retired in Pearl Harbor. It was on the deck of this ship that the Japanese surrender was signed and World War II ended. Explore all five decks while learning the history of this impressive battleship affectionately known as the “Mighty Mo.”
Cemetery of the Pacific
On the way back to Waikiki, there’s another opportunity to pay your respects to the men and women who have served their country honorably. Known in Hawaiian as “Puowaina,” or Hill of Sacrifice, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Punchbowl Crater holds the graves of thousands of military personnel, including many who served in Pearl Harbor.
Honolulu City Tour
Once back in the city we pass through downtown Honolulu, home to such historic buildings as Iolani Palace and the Hawaii State Capitol Building. Be sure to take some pictures at the 18-foot-tall bronze statue of King Kamehameha, the legendary ruler who united the islands into one beautiful kingdom.
The Remember Pearl Harbor Tour takes you to the “Bookends of World War II,” the memorial to the USS Arizona, whose sinking led to America’s entry into the war, and the Battleship Missouri, where it finally ended.
