Honolulu is the metropolitan capital of Hawaii. It is the state's only unified city and county, encompassing the entire island of Oahu. As Hawaii's center of commerce, Honolulu is home to about 70 percent of Hawaii's residents, as well as its principal harbor and primary airport. Its location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean makes the subtropical island both a popular tourist destination and a strategic outpost for all branches of the U.S. military.
