SOME FIVE-O LOCATIONS AROUND TOWN
Outside the Iolani Palace, home of Five-O. Just prior to this picture being taken, there was a car crash to my right!
The War Memorial Natatorium, usually the site of criminal activity on Five-O. In a state of serious deterioration, it will be restored soon at a cost of several million dollars.
On my way into the War Memorial Natatorium. The picture is slightly out of focus because just as it was taken, a terrific gust of wind blew past us!
The Dillingham Fountain east of the War Memorial Natatorium that McGarrett drives past in some early season episodes. Taken in a hurry since we were parked in front of someone's driveway.
Standing in front of the statue at the Punchbowl Memorial Cemetery featured in the show's opening credits.
