Hawaii’s Tourist places
Honolulu Hale, the city hall s a Mediterranean Renaissance style building constructed in 1929. Free live concerts take place here in the evenings. Built in 1842 of massive blocks of solid coral, Kawaiaha’o Church witness the coronations, weddings and funerals of generation of Hawaiian royalty.
Iolani Palace built in 1882 on the site of an earlier place and beautifully restored today, is America’s only royal palace built with the assistance of American Masons. It contains the thrones of King Kalakaua and his successor Queen Liliuokalani.
Honolulu, on the island of O'ahu, is the urban metropolis of the Aloha State. Here different cultures blend harmoniously, yet each retains its distinct character. Just 3 1/2 mi from downtown is the tourist mecca of Waikiki. Set on the sunny dry side of O'ahu, Waikiki provides a stunning setting along with the buzz of international hotel and shopping destinations.
