Headed to Hawaii? Add some of Sarah Vowell’s favorite places to your itinerary.

“Iolani Palace is right in downtown Honolulu. It tells the story of the Hawaiian monarch and the overthrow of the monarchy.” / “In Lahaina on Maui, stop at the old prison. The Americans in Hawaii in the 19th century didn’t all get along — the missionaries outlawed everything the sailors would want to do.” / “One of my favorite historic sites in Hawaii is the place of refuge on the Big Island. It was a tourist attraction when Mark Twain went there in the 19th century. You can sit on the same rock Mark Twain sat on.”
