  Iolani Palace and Coronation Gazebo, Honolulu.

The Iolani Palace is technically the only royal palace to be found on what is now US soil. I visit there regularly, since the site is also where the royal family built Hawaii's best library, only a few blocks from my office in downtown Honolulu -- our office tower, coincidentally, now covers the site of Kamehameha's original palace, built a century or so earlier.
