Say aloha to good food and beautiful scenery in Waimea Canyon, known as the "Grand Canyon of the Pacific." The journey to visit the canyon, which was created by a massive earthquake, is well worth the effort, with stunning lookout points along the way. Kokee State Parkis a rainforest consisting of more than 4,400 acres and offers hikes along the rim of Waimea Canyon. The restaurant at Kokee Lodge may be a simple lunch café, but the pulled pork sandwiches with homemade barbecue sauce contain some of the best slow-roasted pork you’ve ever tasted. The Greek salad, made from locally grown lettuce and tomatoes, balances out the meal, but if you finish with the coconut pie you might need to head out on another hike through the canyon.
