Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden
Onomea means "good feeling," and you'll certainly pick up that vibe here. Set in a valley that slopes to the sea, this tamed jungle displays a variety of orchids, palms (some as tall as 100 feet), heliconias, gingers, bromeliads and other plants-more than 2,000 species at present, some rare and exotic. A three-tiered waterfall and natural streams add to the serenity of the setting.
