Honolulu (/hɒnəˈluːluː/) is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Hawaii. Honolulu is the southernmost major U.S. city. Although the name "Honolulu" refers to the urban area on the southeastern shore of the island of Oahu, the city and county government are consolidated as the City and County of Honolulu which covers the entire island. For statistical purposes, the U.S. Census Bureau recognizes the urban part of Honolulu as a census-designated place. Honolulu is the most populous state capital relative to state population, with population of 371,657 (at the 2000 census). In the Hawaiian language, Honolulu means "sheltered bay" or "place of shelter".
