Cultural Tours of Hawaii: History & Food in Honolulu
Hawaii was once its own kingdom, and elements of that legacy can be felt throughout the islands, where buildings like Iolani Palace stand as reminders of a royal past. Even in recent history, memories of WWII still linger at Pearl Harbor, with shipwrecked vessels marking the aftermath of a tragic battle. Separated from the mainland by thousands of miles and home to people from all over the world, Hawaii also boasts its own style of cuisine that blends Asian flavors with traditional cooking.
