Honolulu in Honolulu County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
The Ala Wai Canal
—Waikīkī Historic Trail —
Although the primary use of the Ala Wai is to provide drainage of water flowing into Waikīkī, the Canal also provides recreational space for canoe paddlers, boaters, joggers, and sightseers throughout its history.
Begun in 1995, the Hawai‘i Convention Center is the largest public building of its kind in Hawai‘i. It is situated on 10 acres of land, contains more than one million square feet of floor space, three acres of gardens, a 200,000 square foot Exhibit Hall, 100,000 square feet of meeting rooms, and a 36,000 square foot ballroom! Funded by the State of Hawai‘i, this world class facility truly captures Waikīkī’s “Hawaiian Sense of Place”
