From hiking to surfing, Hawaii offers many unique activities to enjoy. Visitors can relax on the island of Maui and see humpback whales perform acrobatic moves above the water’s surface. More than 10,000 humpback whales inhabit local waters during the winter. Vacationers can catch the best views between January and March around Maui Nui.
Iolani Palace, another Hawaiian experience, remains standing in Oahu. A reminder of the former Hawaiian monarchy, the palace was built in 1882 for King Kalakaua. It features luxurious American Florentine style and was among the first establishments to incorporate such inventions as the telephone and electric lights. Visitors can view the throne room where diplomats and writers were entertained, observe the room that harbored Queen Liliuokalani, and walk through basement galleries filled with royal jewels and historic photographs.
