In the early morning, we'll head toward Pearl Harbor. Here you'll explore the Pacific Historic Parks Pearl Harbor Visitor Center. By doing so, you'll learn about events before, during and after the devastating attack. Tragically, more than 2,400 American sailors, soldiers, marines and civilians perished that day.
Next we'll take a shuttle boat to the USS Arizona Memorial. This is where visitors from around the world pause to reflect while gazing at the ruins of this battleship.
Later we'll board the nearby USS Missouri, which stands watch over its sunken sister ship. Here you'll learn about "Mighty Mo's" wartime history. This includes serving as the site where Imperial Japan formally surrendered to the Allies in Tokyo Bay. As you explore this ship, you'll see a signed copy of the surrender document that ended the war.
Upon leaving Pearl Harbor, your guide will take you through downtown Honolulu. As you do so, you'll learn about Hawaii's history as a monarchy, a territory and eventually America's 50th state.
