Great shopping area which was right next to our hotel (The Westin). Shopping area had just about everything you might want to take back to mainland. Great area to people watch from all over the world.

Nestled between some fabulous resort is the historic Whaler's village. The center is beautifully presented with old school charm. The history of Hawaii is fascinating and the pride of the locals is everywhere to see. A beautiful spot!

We were hoping to visit this museum, but found out it no longer exists. Apparently, they closed up with plans to renovate, but that never happened and they just closed down for good.

We did not understand that this is not so much a museum as it is a whale display at a mall. It was nothing special, but the mall was nice.
