We then continued to the top of the Aloha Tower, built in 1926 it was the tallest structure in Hawaii for over four decades. Overlooking the harbor, we got glimpses of the skyline and the Falls of Clyde, a historic ship that's currently under restoration. These were interesting little pit stops we took on our self-guided walking tour that were completely free to experience.
I was blown away seeing tropical fish swimming in the harbor in the heart of Honolulu. Even in a busy harbor the water was still so clear and blue! We went on to take pictures of the famous statue of King Kamehameha in front of the historic Aliiolani Hale, and then stopped at the Kawaiahao Church, a building built out of coral in the 1840s. I wrapped up our walk by snapping a few shots of the marquee out front of the Hawaii Theatre. Then it was back to Waikiki.
