Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden
The Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden sits on 17 acres and it includes not only its own garden, but a nature preserve as well. With a plethora of waterfalls, streams, and a boardwalk situated on the Pacific coast, this virtual tour is certainly a calming one, both visually and audibly.
In 1977, Dan J. Lutkenhouse purchased the property that later became the garden, which was created by Lutkenhouse himself. Following the public opening of the Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden in 1984, the Lutkenhouse family left the property to a nonprofit trust in 1995. Expect to see more than 2,000 plant species, including over 80 species of heliconias and bromeliads, not to mention coconut and mango palm trees that have been around for over a century.
