Honolulu - City by the Sea

It is easy to underrate Honolulu. So many come to Hawaii for the beaches, by which they mean resort beaches, not urban beaches. But, Honolulu is a city, like Los Angeles, which has some wonderful beaches. They just aren't resort beaches, and so they are more full of urban life. At a resort, a stroll along the beach is predictable, but in a city, it is always full of surprises.
