DIVE INTO THE BEAUTIFUL WATERS OF HAWAII AND TRY SOME OF THE LOCAL CUISINE WITH THIS LIST OF THINGS TO DO.
Tour a Hawaiian Royal Palace
See the only royal palace in the United Sates on the island of Oahu in downtown Honolulu. Iolani Palace was the home and government building of Hawaiian kings and queens until 1893.

The ukulele was invented in Hawaii during the 1800s. Listen for it in the song “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” played by the late Hawaiian musician Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. Stop by a ukulele shop to ask about lessons.
Visit Dole Plantation
Dole Plantation offers “Hawaii’s Complete Pineapple Experience.” Take the garden tour to learn about pineapple, cacao, coffee plants, and more.
Crack Open a Coconut
Fruit stands all over the islands sell fresh coconut. The vendor will crack it open or drill a hole in it so you can sip the delightfully refreshing coconut water straight from the source!
