    Appreciated that there were staff in the parking area to guide us to check in downstairs. We took the audio tour and highly recommend it so you may proceed at your own pace and look at the rooms as long as you wish. All staff were very friendly and helpful! All displays were done tastefully and with sufficient information for patrons.

    Our guide at Washington Place was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. Throughout the house there are QR codes that lead to videos to help you learn more (though our guide, Zita, was extremely thorough!) My favorite part of the tour was upstairs where we could go in different rooms to see exhibits curated by Washington Place. I learned a lot about Liliuokalani and her life and amazing legacy. Additionally, the tour was small (15-20 people), which allowed for a better experience.

    Our Uber driver was curious why we wanted to be dropped off here as it is really now a complex of Hawaii Pacific University. We came to view the Aloha Tower and nice ocean view. There is only one restaurant that is open, at least we saw on our walk by the water.

    The Aloha Tower is not open, just a photo opportunity. Luckily we had planned a nice walk down to the SALT district, so this was not a trip wasted. Would not budget too much time for this area. Just a nice stroll.

    Not much time needed to visit this. They have railing put up around the flame and one homeless guy was sleeping on the bench nearby.

    Stopped here before our Iolani Palace tour. Free and no time investment. A nice sculpture memorial.

    This is a handsome building downtown, very near the Clock Tower and cruise ship port. A bit surprising for a tropical city, like Manhattan.

    Located in the same area as the Judiciary Building and Iolani Palace, this building is often seen as the home of the Honolulu Police Department on Hawaii Five-O. It is a two story building with a large central staircase with large decorative columns.

    Was hoping to visit but it seemed no one was ever there when we went by. Older station with some great architectural elements such as the swing out doors. Needs a little work as one of the doors and windows were covered in plywood. I, at first, thought it was a shut down station until I saw cars stopped in back.
    Did get to stop and talk to the FF's at station #7 at Waikiki Beach. Very nice bunch, very will to talk and was able to get a few t-shirts from them.
