Every time I come to Hawaii this is one of my favorite stops. It take about 2 hours to walk through the gardens but. Something is always in bloom and there is a large variety of orchids to enjoy.

We were disappointed by this one. The gardens were small and didn't particularly stand out in any way. The only saving grace was the interesting pieces of art peppered around the grounds. Make sure you visit the greenhouse with orchids, lilies and other beautiful flowering...More
