Best Tourist Trap


The Dole Plantation on Oahu is a little slice of nothing stuck in the middle of nowhere pretty. Unfortunately for me both of our girls love it. It has all the appeal of a petting zoo and giant aquarium combined. For the cost of a few quarters I score happy children and the best photos. If you have small children don't underestimate the wonder and joy contained in a handful of fish pellets. If you're child free then skip the tourist trap, step on the gas and don't stop until you reach the secluded beaches across from Dillingham Airfield. Snuggle up, watch the waves and laugh at all of the poor suckers stuck riding the Pineapple Express and dishing out fish food.
Wishing you love and sunshine from our little grain of paradise!

What a cute picture. Great to enjoy your own little spot in the world add the tourists do.

Cute picture! It is so true, there are so many things that are so fun for kids but if I was kid free I would not want to go to. But hey, since we have kids it is an excuse to do all those things :)

Those are the best kinds of places when you're a parent though! Getting a few smiles for a few hours for less than a dollar! Wow that is awesome! Wish I lived closer, but if I ever make it to Hawaii that one will certianly be on the list of places to take the kiddos!
If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.

Vaca with the little ones, sounds fun and exhausting all at once.

Enjoy the rest of your trip!

I've been there and took the picture with my face in a pineapple picker person cutout! You're right, it is in the middle of nowhere, isn't it! This is such a cute picture though, I think you've got the better location :-)
