Whenever you’re travelling out of town, one of the most pressing issues is how to get around your destination. For example, you’re traveling to Oahu and need to find transportation for your visit to Pearl Harbor. You’re probably wondering if some options are better than others, and with so many to choose from, it’s a great question. So, what is the best way to get to Pearl Harbor?

Should you take the public transportation known on Oahu as TheBus, or the Waikiki Trolley? Can you just hail a cab or call for a Lyft? All of these are acceptable options, but there is an additional one that for many visitors is better than all of these when it comes to getting from your hotel to Pearl Harbor.

Rather than running the risk of being delayed in arriving to Pearl Harbor, and possibly not getting tickets for the USS Arizona Memorial, why not leave everything to professionals who know all of the ins and outs of getting to and from the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument, as well as tips and tricks for making the most of your time while you’re there.
