Punchbowl National Cemetery {Travel Tuesdays}

It's Tuesday, and that of course means Travel Tuesday! 

Because of Hawaii's importance in the Pacific side of WWII, there are a lot of memorials set up for those that fought and/ or lost their lives in the war. 

Punchbowl National Cemetery is one of those places. 
Cost: Free
Location: Honolulu
Time: 1 hour

The whole cemetery is lined with grave markers. What I especially loved about this place was the simpleness of the markers. It is just such a beautiful place. While we were there, we saw a few families at different grave sights. It was nice to see people coming by the sights and remembering those that had fallen. 

The cemetery doesn't take too long to go through, and I think it's one of those places you should definitely put on your list. The cemetery is beautiful and peaceful, and the views looking out over the city are worth the drive up to the crater. 


So what do y'all think? 

Many thanks to Bonnie and Belinda for the link up! 

Make sure to check back here next Tuesday as I wrap up Hawaii with a list of things to do while you're on the island!
