Fact of the Day: Honolulu

The capital of Hawaii, Honolulu's name obviously comes from the Hawaiian language. Depending on the translation, Honolulu means "calm port" or "sheltered bay".

  12. I've never been there but daughter has and says it is amazing over there.
    She tried surfing for the first time and fell, her board hit her in the mouth and broke off one of her front teeth.
