Sights to see in sunny Honolulu
In addition to its wealth of outdoor activities, there are many sights not to be missed during your stay in one of many Honolulu vacation homes.
Iolani Palace is a national historic landmark located conveniently in downtown Honolulu. The palace is the former home of the Hawaiian monarchy and was the residence of the final king and queen in the late 1800s. The palace is open to visitors with a guide or self-guided audio tour and offers a greater understanding of the cultural and historical side of the islands.
Not far from Iolani Palace is the Kawaiahao Church, which was the first Christian church to be built on Oahu and dates to 1842. The church is a significant landmark in Honolulu and marks the transition from an isolated culture to one of American heritage and cultural dominance. The building itself is unique, as it is constructed from more than 14,000 slabs of coral from nearby ocean reefs. The building and its grounds were made a National Historic Landmark in the 1960s.
Not far from Honolulu is Pearl Harbor, the site of a major American naval base and the target of Japanese bombing in 1942, marking the entry of America into World War II. Today, the site houses a memorial and museum commemorating the loss of life and sacrifice of the people of Oahu and U.S.A. naval personnel. Though located outside of the city, Pearl Harbor is easily accessed from Honolulu vacation rentals by taxi, public transportation or rental car.
