We went to the area to visit the palace so taking a picture in front of the statue was a given. We found great on the street parking and were able to navigate to the statue and get our shots quickly. It is was fun to see the statue in person since we have enjoyed seeing the sights of the... More

I have always seen it on TV. Now I got to see it in real life. Pictures do not do it justice. It is worth the trip into town.

Having been the only royalty in the USA this is a must see. It is also important as being the HQ for Hawaii 5 O. It is a good stop for a photo opportunity and to admire the buildings close at hand. One thought struck me after we had left the site and that was - why is the statue... More

We love visiting all the historical/cultural sites in a city. This is a beautiful spot in downtown Honolulu. There are lots of cultural landmarks in the area you can visit.

Everyone has seen the King Kamehameha Statue on Hawaii Five-O. It is even more impressive in person. Very beautiful including the grounds and building. Really cool. Great photo op. Every major bus line and Trolley stops near by. The Iolani Palace is across the street. Added bonus if you are fortunate: major shooting location for Hawaii Five-O. They were shooting... More

We love Hawaii 5-O, so seeing this statue that we've seen on TV so many times was important to us. It was easy to find, and we got some great photos. It was a little smaller than we expected, but that didn't matter. The building behind was a hidden gem that we didn't expect. You have to be searched to... More
