Pearl Harbor Tour

One of our most tragic and also our most victorious hours came with the surprise attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor in 1941. You can celebrate the valor and honor of our veterans with a visit to this seaport in person and relive the events of this historic place as you view the USS Arizona, still in her final resting place. The monument and museum offer video presentations, displays and actual memorabilia salvaged from the attack. Pearl Harbor continues to be one of Oahu's most popular attractions. From here, you'll visit "Mighty Mo," the USS Missouri battleship at Fort Island Bridge where the treaty ending World War II was signed.
