Pearl Harbor

Somber and significant, Pearl Harbor saw a series Japanese attacks on American ships and planes on Dec. 7, 1941, that left 2,403 people dead, nine ships sunk and a further 21 damaged, thrusting the country into World War II. Today, several attractions around this body of water surrounding Ford Island in central Oahu remind and memorialize the events that took place.

The World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument includes many popular spots, while several other attractions can also be found in the waters of the harbor and on Ford Island. Travelers can visit the floating tribute to the USS Arizona (where most of the casualties took place during the attacks), view the rows of white marble columns honoring the dead aboard the USS Oklahoma on Ford Island (accessible via shuttle) and catch the long, white dock within view of the rusty sunken hull of the USS Utah, currently only accessible to those with a valid military ID. Other historic sites include the docked and explorable USS Missouri, the last US battleship ever built, now an informational exhibit; the USS Bowfin, an underwater museum housed in the submarine; and a huge hanger of WWII-era planes at Ford Island’s Pacific Aviation Museum.

Insider's Tip: There’s a lot to see at Pearl Harbor—be sure to choose a tour that includes all of the sites and attractions that are important to you.

Practical Info

Pearl Harbor is set on Oahu's south coast, about 12 miles (20 km) west of Waikiki and Honolulu. The Pearl Harbor Visitor Center is open daily from 7am until 5pm; it is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. Exploring all that Pearl Harbor has to offer will take at least a full day—especially for history and aviation buffs. It should be noted that various attractions may have separate admission fees. A multitude of tours help take the hassle out of navigating this huge area, offering everything from simple shuttle service from Waikiki to ticket bundles packaging multiple see-it-yourself sites and guided tours on land and by boat.
