Pearl Harbor?[edit]

Two worries about this article: first, I think the name "Pearl Harbor" would be far more recognizable/common, and second, the level of detail is a little extreme for a travel guide. Jpatokal 03:27, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

(moved from User talk:Jpatokal)
Pearl Harbor actually refers either to the body of water or the military base down the road. Pearl Harbor as a location would be the same as saying Tokyo Bay. Its not Tokyo Bay but Tokyo while Pearl Harbor is no more or less than Honolulu. Celticevergreen 04:46, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

Not an article?[edit]

I'm afraid I don't see this as a Wikitravel article. (It doesn't pass the "Can you sleep there?" test.) The Arizona memorial is not a destination, it's an attraction: a place one visits during one's time in Honolulu. In fact, it's already listed as such in Honolulu#See. - Todd VerBeek 09:38, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

If you think so then ok. I would consider this to be the second reason most people visit Oahu after the beach but you are right, you can't sleep there. Most peole would consider this a museum anyways. Celticevergreen 12:16, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

It isn't a question of whether it's important or not; clearly it is and I hope to get to it someday. But providing detailed information about individual attractions is simply beyond the scope of this guide. I'm sorry to turn such a well-written article into a redirect, and I've copied a little of the information from it into the Honolulu listing. - Todd VerBeek 18:57, 9 June 2007 (EDT)
