Vacationing in Hawaii is a dream of many people. There are so many beautiful places to visit, not to mention that beautiful scenery. However, if you are planning a trip to the Islands, you should add some educational discovery tours onto your agenda.
One of the great educational discovery tours is touring the pineapple fields, including the Dole Plantation tour. You will learn information such as the fact that George Washington grew pineapples in his hot house at Mount Vernon. During these educational discovery tours, you will also see how pineapples are grown and processed.
Another one of the more popular educational discovery tours includes tours of the USS Arizona and Pearl Harbor tours. You will be able to learn about this historic event in U.S. history, as well as interesting facts about the ship.
The USS Arizona is the final resting place for many of the 1,177 crewmen who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Educational discovery tours of this memorial will let you have a look at the bond that went beyond just being shipmates. There were, in fact, 37 sets of brothers that were assigned to the ship. You can view pictures of these siblings, as well as their other shipmates. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who assisted in the Allied victory in Europe during the Second World War, approved the creation of the USS Arizona Memorial in 1958.
There are plenty of other interesting sites in Hawaii for educational discovery tours. For instance, you can take a tour of Oahu, which is considered the most populous of all Hawaiian Islands.
