Kaiulani Statue

Located at the edge of her fabulous and favorite estate, the statue of Princess Kaiulani pays homage to the aloha she has for her subjects. Historically, several Hawaiian royals maintained homes in Waikiki. None was more elaborate than that of Hawaii's beloved Princess Kaiulani. Her estate encompassed 10 acres as well as being filled with coconut groves ponds, gardens and the islands first Banyan tree. Moreover, there were many peacocks, descendants of which still roam through the Honolulu Zoo just blocks away. Ainahau was demolished to make way for the Princess Kaiulani hotel in 1955, but Hawaii's love for the young Princess still endures. - Lottie Tagupa

Washington Place

This beautiful white historical structure was the home of Captain John Dominis, a rich merchant who built it in the 1840s. Queen Lili'uokalani married his son, John Owen, and also lived here at one time. Up until 2001, it served as mansion to the governor, following which a new residence was built in its vicinity to serve this same purpose. Washington Place is now a museum open to people eager to learn of Hawaii's history. The vintage furniture and elegant architecture are its distinguishing features, and it is definitely worth a visit.

Pearl Harbor

Lorsqu’une attaque militaire inattendue lancée par l’aviation de la Marine japonaise sur la base navale américaine de Pearl Harbor secoua la nation entière, cela déclencha l’entrée des États-Unis dans la Seconde Guerre mondiale, changeant ainsi l’histoire du monde telle qu’on la connaissait. Cette attaque entraîna par la suite des événements déterminants, faisant de cette base navale à Hawaï un élément crucial de l’histoire et du patrimoine américain. Aujourd’hui, Pearl Harbor est dominée par cinq sites historiques qui servent de rappels solennels de cette journée de l’histoire américaine. Lemémorial de l’USS Arizona, le Battleship Missouri Memorial, le USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, le mémorial de l’USS Oklahoma et le Pacific Aviation Museum font tous partie du site de cet épisode de la guerre. Le mémorial de l’USS Arizona, en particulier, rend hommage au navire qui a coulé.
