7th Annual Free Public Walking Tour: Waikiki

Event Overview: As part of the Seventh Annual Architecture Month celebration, the public is invited to join -- by reservation - in a Free Waikiki Walking Tour, led by AIA architects, on Saturday, April 13.

This tour is a specially organized event that will be held by AIA Honolulu on this date only.

Walking Tour Overview:  Over the course of ~ 2 hours, walkers will learn about architecturally significant historic buildings and areas in Waikiki -- a world-famous locale that we are all familiar with, but that too few of us appreciate as a center of historic architecture. The tour covers a distance of 1-1.5 miles.

What to Bring?  All walkers are encouraged to bring water and snacks to keep up their energy.  Comfortable shoes, sunscreen and hats are highly recommended.

Meeting Point - Staggered Tours: Staggered tours will be departing from the Royal Hawaiian Hotel at Tower Lounge, starting from 9am with the last tour leaving at 10am.

Parking Suggestion:  Stay green by walking or taking the bus. If you have to drive we suggest to park at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center (not the hotel parking).  Parking with VALIDATION (buy water, a cookie etc at the shopping center) is FREE for the 1st hour. For the next three hours the fee is $1/hour = $3 for 4 hours. After that it becomes very expensive.
