Honolulu: Crossroads of the Pacific
Honolulu, located on the O'ahu, the third-largest Hawaiian island, has been the Hawaiian capital since 1845, when King Kamehameha III moved it there from Maui. Since then it has been the cultural, economic, and demographic hub of the Hawaiian islands, and has seen many tumultuous changes, from the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy in 1893, the annexation of Hawaii by the United States in 1898, and the infamous Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 that precipitated America's involvement in World War II. Thankfully, despite these events, Honolulu has maintained its reputation as a tropical paradise that welcomes millions of visitors to Hawaii every year. Indeed, tourism is the main engine driving Honolulu's economy, and there are many resorts and attractions that cater to visitors to the city and the island. The population of Honolulu reflects its position in the middle of the Pacific, with substantial groups of Japanese-Americans and Filipene-Americans living there and creating a diverse variety of east-meets-west cultural mixtures.
