The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific is quite a somber place to visit in Honolulu. A stark reminder of those who lost their lives in World War II. It is also a very important burial place for all war veterans in the United States. The cemetery is quite beautifully built and it has a stoic atmosphere to it.
Seeing the gravestones, sculptures and the inscriptions can be quite heartening. There is a sense of pride in the way in which these final resting places of the brave soldiers have been displayed at this site.
Interestingly although the cemetery was built for civilians, it was never used due to its odd location above the city. As a result it was turned into a War Department Cemetery later on. There are 56 memorials in the place honoring people including those who died at Pearl Harbor. These are certainly worth a note. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Honolulu itinerary 4 days.

Such beautiful grounds for our fallen heroes. There are many tour options to visit, and if you get a good tour guide, you'll hear some of the amazing stories of the people interred here
Beautiful and well kept cemetery, lying in the middle of a dormant volcanic crater. We drove by car and it was easy to go to. Whether you're a local or a visitor, this place is a must see.
This is a really stirring Memorial to all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for the United States. And I'd only is the significance of this location quite historical, the facilities are top-notch kept up to shape and very appealing, all while remaining very reverential. I can't imagine anybody missing the opportunity to visit this location as part of a trip to the island of a Oahu.
Wonderful location to learn some history and respect those who lost their lives for our country. Also the are some great views of the city from here.
This place is always kept in top notch shape when visiting. The grounds are kept clean. Visitors are super respectful when on premises. There is a new visitor center built, which was done nicely. The views from Punchbowl are spectacular! It's especially a very heartfelt moment when entering the park on Memorial Day when scouts from all across Hawaii honor each grave with the American flag and a flower or ti leaf lei.
