  • The tour was filled with lots of things for our group to see. The staff was very knowledgeable on Hawaiian history and encouraged questions. The park in the back is a great place to take your kids after and let them play and eat lunch. The thing I would caution you on is if you are driving in yourself it can be hard to see the drive to enter the palace. I believe you will have a great time.
  • Pretty and historic home in the hills above Honolulu. $10 admission charge. Free parking. Great free guided tours really bring the home to life, discussing both the building and the Hawaiian royalty that lived here.
  • Of all the Royal (Ali’i) women, Queen Emma is the most beautiful. Emma’s Summers Place, is classic and simple in the old Royal Hawaiian way. A must see for all who are interested in Hawaiian culture and the Spirit of Aloha.
  • Simply Amazing .......wedding ceremony to take place in front it old giant tree. Definitely a must see and consider your wedding there. Love it. Cal Kendra for more details.
  • This is a quaint little place. There are a total of 6 rooms and the rooms have been decorated with historical artifacts. If possible try to avail of the free docent led tours. There tours are very informative indeed. You get to learn a lot about Hawaii and it's rulers. There is a gift shop at the back of the main building. The gardens around the building are exquisite.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
