Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Garden, Big Island

The 17 acre Hawaiian Tropical Botanical garden near Hilo is arguably the best in Hawaii. The gardens meander down the side of a hill finally ending at the ocean and feature a 3 tiered water fall and a myriad of interesting plants. Exploring the gardens at a leisurely pace takes about 2 hours. This is also a great location for a small wedding. The entrance fee is $15 per person..
