Local families and tourists are breathing a sigh of relief.
The shutdown had a trickle-down effect, impacting everything from loans, the commissary, and other businesses.
They arrived by the bus load, but quickly discovered how the federal shutdown has put a damper on their vacations.
"Disappointing, but what can we do," said Maria Morales, tourist.
"It's pretty hard. My grandfather was in here during Pearl Harbor, so it's kind of one of the things we wanted to see and stuff," said Todd Cunningham, tourist.
The federal shutdown has reportedly cost the National Park Service nearly half-a-million dollars in entrance fees and millions more in visitor spending.
"Everybody affected, vendors, and people that work, tourists, mainly people that depend on income with the government," Morales said.
Other attractions at Pearl Harbor remained open. The USS Bowfin just reopened Tuesday. But some visitors may return later this week after hearing this National Historic Landmark would likely reopen soon.
"That would be awesome before we get on our flight," Cunningham said.
"I'm glad that it's not lasting as long as we were expecting, but just in that short amount of time, a lot of stuff had happened," said Celia Albrecht, Schofield resident.
Thousands of people in Hawaii could not go to work. And the commissaries were closed.
"That put us in a bit of a financial pinch because we had to go outside of our means. Also, I go to college and the funding and stuff was cut back," Albrecht said.
U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz said, "This shutdown caused terrible, unnecessary pain for Hawaii families...It's time for Congress to get back to work and focus on helping the middle class."
U.S. Congresswoman Colleen Hanabusa said, "What I am most concerned about is whether I consider this unnecessary action. We have caused permanent damage. That's what I'm hoping we don't have."
People are ready to put this behind them and hope the government can prevent this from happening again.
"Because they're not the ones being affected, it's all of us that are being affected," Albrecht said.
U.S. Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard said, "I am relieved that we are finally moving forward today with a bipartisan agreement that will protect our economy."
U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono said, "It should be clear that dysfunction is not the proper way to govern."
