I would recommend stopping here early in the morning on the weekend, if possible. Parking can be hard to find. The statue is right across the street from Iolani Palace. Metered street parking is the closest parking to both sites so bring change.

King Kamehameha is iconic to Hawaii! It's a beautiful statue of the most historical figure of Hawaiian history. Besides Diamond Head, and Pearl Harbor, the King should be a must see--especially to all Hawaii 5-0 fans.
