This Beautiful 294-Acre Botanical Garden In Hawaii Is A Sight To Be Seen
With a climate unlike the rest of the United States, Hawaii is home to some of the country’s most unique botanical gardens, from the enchanting Liliuokalani Park and Gardens in Hilo to Kauai’s famous Allerton Garden and the Koko Crater Cactus Garden on Oahu’s southern shore, and everything in between. These gardens feature thousands of species of tropical plants as well as flora indigenous to our beautiful gardens, and while they are all gorgeous in their own way, there is one garden that stands out in a crowd.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
