Since 1985, the city and county of Honolulu, in collaboration with numerous artists, has presented the ever popular Honolulu City Lights to the delight of Hawaii residents and visitors alike. Hop aboard a trolley or double-decker bus that offers some of the best views of this festive holiday celebration! The glorious winter wonderland created throughout downtown Honolulu is best enjoyed from the comfort of an open-air vehicle. This one-hour journey includes two revolutions of the famous holiday lights along the streets of Beretania, Bishop, King, Alapai, and Punchbowl. You can even choose to disembark and walk among the displays, catching a later trolley back to Waikiki!
