On our drive from Hilo back to Waikoloa on the northern route, we stopped at the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Gardens not knowing what to expect, and spent an incredible 2+ hours walking from beautiful flower to exquisite plant to the waterfalls and then the ocean and back. We loved that most every plant was labeled so you could tell what you were seeing and where it was native - not many were found native to Hawaii. It was such a contrast to the Kona side - a perfect excursion to take if you are staying on that side as we were.
