Honolulu is the remotest city of its size in the world. 

Honolulu means "sheltered harbor" or "calm port".

As of 2015, Honolulu was ranked high on world livability rankings, and was also ranked as the 2nd safest city in the U.S. 

Visitors to the Hawaiian Islands spent $17.82 billion1 in 2018, an increase of 6.8 percent compared to 2017, according to preliminary year-end statistics released today by the Hawaii Tourism Authority.

Additionally, 217,000 jobs statewide were supported by Hawaii’s tourism industry in 2018, up 6.8 percent from 2017.
