Honolulu is not only beautiful but it is filled with royal accounts from the past. Iolani Palace is located in the downtown area and a great place to venture out to on your vacation. There are also plenty of Honolulu vacation rentals that would pair extremely well with a very popular fortress adventure. Relax in your private space during the evening and spend your day exploring a piece of amazing history.
Iolani was originally built in 1879 and was originally named Hale Ali’I. The palace was home to King Kalakaua and Queen Kapi`olani. They would use the palace for entertaining and even updated their home with several upgrades like plumbing that we can take for granted today. The King was very much into art and culture, and this was reflected in his home.
Flash forward to several decades later and you have the modern marvel that is a must see when you travel to Hawaii. Locals and tourists are able to experience the landmark as well as take part in great activities. One in particular is the Hawaiian quilting class, which has been taking place in Iolani for over 40 years. Not only do you learn about a very popular craft but you are able to take in centuries of tradition. Whether you are a novice and expert, the class does offer assistance for all levels.
This is a palace that you definitely want to visit. Filled with great knowledge and artistic architecture, you will be amazed from the second you step into the building. You also have your choice of great Hawaii vacation condo rentals, where you can find the luxury and comfort that is sure to please. After a day of exploring and learning, what could be better than coming home and still feeling like royalty?
