Discover the colorful flowers and tropical plant life of Oahu’s various botanical gardens. The Honolulu Botanical Gardens feature five diverse sites including the Foster Botanical Garden near Downtown Honolulu and the 400-acre Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden on the lush Windward Coast. The Waimea Valley on the North Shore not only offers gardens to explore, but also allows you and your family to experience Hawaiian games and crafts.

Learn about Hawaii’s farm to table process — which is so important to Hawaii Regional Cuisine — by taking a farm tour of places like Kahuku Farms. Visit Dole Plantation for a taste of some fresh pineapple and learn about Jim Dole's pineapple legacy in Hawaii. While you're there, lose yourself in the plantation's 1.7-mile pineapple maze.
