Did you know that there is a royal residence in the US? There is one and only one and that is the Iolani Palace in Honolulu. This palace was built by the last king of Hawaii, King David Kalakaua, in 1882. Iolani Palace was only used for royal residence by King Kalakaua and then by his successor and sister, Queen Liliuokalani.
You can tour Iolani Palace to learn more about the Hawaiian monarchy and the palace’s history. Docent-guided and audio guided tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday. Tour sizes are limited, so reserve your tour in advance. See this link for more about tours and admission fees.
