    Favorite thing: what an ironic twist that most visitors to pearl harbor are japanese hehehe since japan is now a peaceful country and is a major ally of the United States. The Japanese tourist are awed by the sights in the pearl harbor area and the memorial. December 7, 2009 marks the 67th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and The United States' entry into World War II. Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial remain top tourist destinations in Hawaii with over 1,500,000 visitors annually. The addition of the Battleship Missouri and the 1999 opening of the USS Missouri Memorial has further enhanced the importance of this historic area. The memorial, dedicated in 1962, spans the sunken hull of the battleship without touching it. Since it opened in 1980, the National Park Service has operated the USS Arizona Memorial Visitor Center associated with the memorial. Historical information about the attack, boat access to the memorial, and general visitor services are available at the center. The 19,585 pound anchor of the Arizona is displayed at the entrance of the visitor center.

    Fondest memory: one must not go to oahu and not experience going to the USS Arizona Memorial

    Pearl Harbor

    Favorite thing: Pearl Harbor is a great place to tour. You first get a historical film and then take a boat the the memorial.

    Unbelievable that it is free! I thought nothing was free.....of course they do take donations.

    News paper Bulletin.

    Favorite thing: The original Newspaper Bulletin of the Honululu Star , it is things like that that can be seen at the Museum and bookstore at the Visitors Center at the Arizona Memorial.
    Very emotional to see all this but it has inmense historical value , this should and will never be forgotten.

    Fondest memory: Of course this memorial is an emotional visit
    For those that had family lost in this terrible attack it has to be very difficult to see.

    Favorite thing: Pearl Harbor is
    a peacefull place
    now. Hard to
    believe what
    happened there.
    This is the
    anchor of the
    Arizona. It went
    down with most
    of
    it's crew. Oil
    is still comming
    up after almost
    50 years.
