Gold Coast Walking Tour

In addition to our monthly Downtown and Chinatown Walking Tours, AIA Honolulu shares a special Walking Tour annually in celebration of Architecture Month.

This year's tour showcases Oahu's beautiful Gold Coast stretching from the edge of Waikiki to the slopes of Leahi (Diamond Head).  Our architect docents will feature the contrast between historic single-family residences from the late 19th and early 20th centuries and mid-century condominium towers.

Staggered Tours: On Saturday, October 14th, staggered tours leave from the check-in point every 10 minutes from 8am-10am.  Each docent will lead up to 12 participants. 

ADA Disclaimer: The walking tour route has been selected to provide the maximum level of accessibility and safety possible in the area, however, risks do exist. Sidewalks are used wherever possible, but a portion of the tour is over grass and ramps between sidewalks are not always available.

Start & Check-In:  The check-in point will be at Kapiolani Park, on the Leahi side near the fountain.  

A map will be provided to all registered attendees ahead of the event.

The tour takes about 1,5 hours (less than 1 mile) but due to a larger number of walkers, we appreciate your patience & flexibility if our estimated tour length is not exactly as scheduled.

What You Need to Bring: Water bottle and snacks to keep up your energy; Comfortable shoes; Sunscreen and hats are highly recommended and Umbrella (depending on weather).

AIA/CES LU: This tour qualifies for 1.5 AIA/CES LU. AIA Honolulu is the registered provider.

Cost: $25/person

Parking Suggestions: There is metered street parking all along Diamond head road at Kapiolani Park. The fee is 50 cents per hour.
