“Standard Honolulu Attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

If you're in Honolulu you'll have to take a picture of this quintessential Honolulu attraction. It looks just like all the pictures that youve seen of it, so don't expect anything new. Parking is a bit scarce in the area, and don't for get to feed the meter when you find a spot.

A quick stop at this place is recommended. I do enjoyed the story our tour guide told about King Kamehameka. By the way, this is a good place to use restroom inside the Supreme Court behind the statue.

“Statue of King Kamehameka 1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

First I would like to clear up something written by bigb67. The Ststue of King Kamehameka 1 is not ouside of the palace, I'olani palace is across the street from the statue.The building behing the statue is Ali i'olina Hale originally to be the home of King Kamehameka V, Today it houses the Hawaii State Supream Court. It is a must see when in downtown Honolulu, and you may have to wait your turn for a picture. I'OLANI PALACE across the street was the home of Hawaii's last reining monarch Queen Lydia Lili'uokalani, and is the only palace on U.S. soil.

“A Huge Part of Hawaii's History”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2013

King Kamehameha stands proudly in front of the palace. No less that fifty people posed for pictures in front of the statue while I was there. I guess it's one of those, "I was there." kind of things. There's several other notable sites to see in the same area, all within walking distance.
