The wildest night spot in Waikiki – daytime,
too – is the Honolulu Zoo, the only major city zoo for 2,300
miles! The Zoo received its name in 1947, but its beginning
is much older – nearly 125 years. Its original collection
of exotic birds was part of an 1876 grant of royal lands dedicated
in 1877 as a public park by King David Kalakaua in honor of
his wife, Queen Kapiolani.
