"Pearl Harbour" Pearl City by kenmerk

Pearl City Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 56 photos

You can see the bookends of American involvement in World War II at Pearl Harbor. From the Japanese bombing of the Harbour in December 1942 and visit the deck of the Missouri where the Japanese finally surrendered in August 1945.

I've been to World War Two historical sights throughout the Pacific (Guam, Saipan, Pohnpei, Corrigedor, Bataan) But I think that no tour would be complete without visiting Pearl Harbour, and seeing the two ships that are most closely idenfied with this conflict.

    Very well done Ken! 'Mighty Mo' has always been one of my favourite battleships! She certainly proved her worth for years to come, in both the Vietnam and first Gulf wars. I too was quite impressed by the Arizona Memorial during my tour of the harbour!

    You're right, Ken, I'll stick with Ritz-Carlton! Guantanamera was never motivated to enlist either, fortunately!

    I was hoping for Pearl City L&L to make me nostalgic! Thanks for some pics from my former home island...
