Just across the street from the North Shore, Waimea Valley park & waterfall turned out to be one of my family's favorite places on Oahu. The minute we started our walk through the park, we were blown away by how beautiful it was. Being the picture taker in our group, I was practically jumping up and down with excitement at all the photo ops there. We started with a nice, little lunch at the cafe near the entrance and enjoyed seeing posters of all the movies filmed in the park. My husband and I and our kids (11 & 8) took the wide, paved path to the waterfall, which was a very doable, easy "hike." We took some more beautiful pictures at the waterfall and then got a ride on a golf cart back to the main entrance. This is a must-visit if you're on the North Shore!
