Visit the USS Arizona Memorial.  Still very moving for me after visiting soo many times.  I suggest to buy tickets ahead of time so you don't wait for hours and also try to find parking.  While waiting, you can talk to veterans onsite, wander around the open air museums.  A lot has been done over the years to make this a standing reminder of December 7th.

Learn more about visiting the USS Arizona Memorial and the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and experiencing the history of a day that will live in infamy.
