Explore Hawaii’s Famous Iolani Palace By Night In Honor Of Queen Kapiolani’s Birthday
While there are countless castles scattered throughout the United States, there is only one royal palace on American soil — Hawaii’s own Iolani Palace, a place of pure magic and beauty nestled in Honolulu’s capital district. And while we love visiting this slice of history during the day, we can’t wait to explore after dark this winter during the limited nighttime tours offered in honor of Queen Kapiolani’s Birthday.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
