A Taste of Honolulu, Hawaii

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT HONOLULU?

  1. Honolulu is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Hawaii. The population of the CDP was 377,357 at the 2006 estimated census.

  2. Honolulu is the southernmost major U.S. city. Although the name "Honolulu" refers to the urban area on the southeastern shore of the island of Oahu, the city and county government are consolidated as the City and County of Honolulu, which covers the entire island. For statistical purposes, the U.S. Census Bureau recognizes the urban part of Honolulu as a census-designated place.

  3. Over half of Honolulu's jobs lie between government, trade, transportation, and utilities and hospitality/tourism services. The largest city and airport in the Hawaiian Islands, Honolulu acts as a natural gateway to the islands' large tourism industry, which brings millions of visitors and contributes $10 billion annually to the local economy. Honolulu's location in the Pacific also makes it a large business and trading hub, particularly between the East and the West. Other important aspects of the city's economy include military defense, research and development, and manufacturing.

  4. The Contemporary Museum is the only contemporary art museum in the state. It has two locations: main campus in Makiki and a multi-level gallery in downtown Honolulu at the First Hawaiian Center.

  5. Honolulu also annually holds the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF). It showcases some of the best films from producers all across the Pacific Rim and is the largest "East meets West" style film festival of its sort in the United States.

  7. The median income for a household in the CDP was $45,112, and the median income for a family was $56,311.

  8. Honolulu experiences a year-round tropical climate with a mostly dry summer season. Honolulu sees lots of sunshine most of the year. Temperatures vary little throughout the months, with average high temperatures of 80-89 F and lows of 65-75 F throughout the year. Temperatures rarely exceed 90 F, with lows in the upper-50's F occurring once or twice a year. Waters off the coast of Honolulu average 82 F in the summer months and 77 F in the winter months.
