  Iolani Palace
by sswagner

This is widely known as the only true royal palace inside of United States territory. In the middle of downtown Honolulu, this building was once inhabited by the Hawaiian monarchy before Hawaii became a part of the United States. There are tours available to go inside, although I did not have time to do this. Fans of the show Hawaii Five-O will recognize this building as the headquarters of Jack Lord's crime fighting character. In reality, there is neither a "Hawaii Five-O" unit nor has the palace ever contained any type of police headquarters.
