Video: Historic Waikiki
Before Waikiki became a travel destination for millions around the globe, it was a haven for Hawaii monarchs, from Kamehameha the Great to Queen Liliuokalani. On this video tour, we’ll take you to some of Waikiki’s most historic locations.
This spot once served as a campsite for King Kamehameha during his campaign to conquer the Hawaiian Islands.
The building that houses the U.S. Army Museum of Hawaii is a piece of history in itself.
This small park in one of Waikiki’s busy intersections only hints at the tragedy-marred life of businessman Archibald Cleghorn, who married into Hawaiian royalty.
Despite its theme-park-like appearance, this shopping center stands on the grounds of King Kalakaua’s former Waikiki estate.
