Since 1964 when the venue first opened as the Honolulu International Center, the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena has been one of the most popular destinations in Hawaii. While concerts certainly make up the majority of the schedule at Neal S. Blaisdell Arena these days, basketball games are still occasionally held inside the popular arena. The venue is one part of the larger Neal S. Blaisdell Center which, in addition to the much loved arena, boasts conference rooms, an exhibition hall, a galleria, and a concert hall. The whole complex was expanded and remodeled in 1994 and now is among the largest and most state of the art venues in all of Hawaii.

Honolulu is the capital of Hawaii and has plenty to offer visitors and residents alike. Of course there are the marvelous beaches, Diamond Head, Ala Moana Crater and all of the beauty you can experience by hiking around these areas or simply relaxing on the beach and listening to the waves. If you happen to be in Honolulu at the right time you could watch the NFL Pro Bowl or a big time college basketball tournament. Of course you cannot go to Honolulu without visiting the USS Arizona Memorial to pay tribute to the people lost during the Pearl Harbor attack.
