The Unique Factory Tour You Can Only Experience In Hawaii

The Hawaiian Islands are known for pristine beaches in a variety of colors, lush scenery, towering mountains, cascading waterfalls, and booming tourism industry. You might be surprised to learn, however, that you can find a variety of other industries and agriculture in the Aloha State, including, but not limited to, the production of coffee, chocolate, and, our favorite, macadamia nuts. I challenge you to find someone who has never heard of — or even tasted — a Mauna Loa macadamia nut. But fewer have experienced the process it takes to make your favorite tasty Hawaiian treat, which is why a visit to the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Visitor Center absolutely must be added to your Hawaiian bucket list.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
