Banyan Drive Review

More than 50 enormous banyan trees with aerial roots dangling from their limbs were planted some 60 to 70 years ago by visiting celebrities. Names such as Amelia Earhart and Franklin Delano Roosevelt can be seen on plaques affixed to the trees. A scenic loop beginning at the Hawaii Naniloa Resort makes a nice walk.

    Worth it if you're nearby

    Nothing to go out of your way to see, but if you're near there, it's worth a drive. Popular with locals.

    Make a morning or afternoon out of strolling the Lili'uokalani Gardens and walking down Banyan Drive. Stop and get your feet wet at the tide pools. A nice time for the kids too.
