The Unique Botanical Garden In Hawaii With Its Very Own Lagoon
With a climate unlike the rest of the United States, Hawaii is home to some of the country’s most unique botanical gardens. These gardens feature thousands of species of tropical plants as well as flora indigenous to our beautiful islands, and while they are all gorgeous in their own way, none are quite as unique as the gem we’re sharing with you today. This 240-acre non-profit botanical garden doubles as a sculpture park and event venue and is also home to a gorgeous lagoon sure to make you swoon.
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!
