Iolani Palce
Iolani Palace

Iolani palace was the last residence of Hawaiian monarchs King Kalakaua and his sister Queen Liliuokalani, until the overthrow of the monarchy in 1893. Truly grand in architecture and significance, the palace was reopened as a museum in 1978, and features important cultural and historical artifacts of Hawaii. The palace grounds are often host to cultural events, concerts, and community gatherings. Visit Iolani Palace, a sacred place to learn about & honor Hawaii’s royal heritage.

Pali Lookout
Pali Lookout

More than 1,000 feet above sea level, the stone terrace that makes up the Pali Lookout looks out over Kaneohe, Kailua, the small island of Chinaman’s Hat, and neighboring Coconut Island. At such an impressive height, it seems that the whole of the island is visible. The Pali Lookout is famous for strong gusts and howling winds, so don’t wear a hat unless you're prepared to sacrifice it to the island of Oahu.

Dole Plantation

Operated by the world famous Dole Food Company, the Dole Pineapple Plantation celebrates the rich and delicious history of pineapple cultivation in Hawaii. The basic grounds are free and include pineapple-cutting demonstrations. Numerous food and drink options abound at the fruit juice stand, in the gift shop and the Plantation Grille Restaurant. This plantation is also home to the world’s largest maze. Winding over three acres and including more than two miles of confusing pathways, a game including finding eight secret stations is as fun as it is confusing.

Kaneohe Bay
Kaneohe Bay

Kaneohe Bay features the largest sheltered body of water in Oahu, is the only bay on the island of Oahu with a barrier reef, and chances are very good that you’ve seen it before. The bay area includes five tiny islands, most prominent among them MokoliI, or “Chinaman’s Hat,” and Moku o Loe,  “Coconut Island." Coconut Island was featured in the world-famous television show Gilligan’s Island, but the bay and its scenic views were also pictured in the movies Pearl Harbor and 50 First Dates.

Waikiki Aquarium
Waikiki Aquarium

Close in proximity to Waikiki Beach and the famous Diamond Head Crater, the Honolulu Zoo offers to add a bit of jungle safari to your tropical vacation. An impressive collection of birds from around the world is matched only by the beauty and majesty of many animals from the African savannah. With its roots stretching as far back as 1876, what began as a three hundred-acre park has since expanded to a modern zoological wonder on fourteen acres with enclosures mimicking natural animal habitats, much like the world-famous San Diego Zoo.

Sealife Park
Sea Life Park

Located just north of the Hanauma Bay Natural Preserve, Sea Life Park integrates lagoons, pools, reefs, and theaters. The main attraction is the rare opportunity to swim alongside and even touch dolphins under the watchful eye of experienced dolphin trainers. In addition to this is a fully operating ocean park, providing dolphin and sea lion shows, a reef tank that is home to reef sharks, stingrays and tropical fish. An environment unto itself, the aquarium holds 300,000 gallons of water. Sea lion feedings and an introduction to penguins are just a few more activities that can be enjoyed.
