Whether you ride the pipeline or simply sit on the sandy shore and watch, learn more about the royal sport of wave riding at the new Honolulu Surfing Museum. Located in the Ohana Waikiki Beachcomber hotel, this local shrine to the sport showcases artifacts, videos, and surf-inspired items from Hawaii and around the world. Best of all and entirely appropriate: The museum boasts a liquor license, so you can sip on a mai tai or ice-cold beer while you also absorb history.
