Waimea

Trip Planner USA  /  Hawaii  /  Island of Hawaii  /  Waimea
(4.1/5 based on 1,800+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: sightseeing, adventure, golf
A vast agricultural land with one of the largest cattle ranches in the United States, Waimea embraces its ranching roots. Home to both cattle and sheep operations, travelers will notice that stop signs are spelled "whoa," instead of "stop." The valley abuts the ocean and descends into a gorge that is covered from floor to plateau with lush growth. Many of the species are protected, and there are areas where guests are only admitted during certain hours. In town, the rugged atmosphere fades to showcase an upscale culture, including eateries with James Beard award-winning chefs and a theater. Take a look at our United States trip generator to refine the details of your trip to Waimea.
