For a fun day out in the Hawaiian countryside, discover Oahu’s pineapple heritage at the Dole Plantation. What started out as a fruit stand in the middle of the pineapple fields in 1950 is now an extremely popular Hawaiian attraction.
The Dole pineapple empire was founded more than a century ago by the Pineapple King, James Dole. Visit his original pineapple plantation to tour the living museum housed in a traditional plantation home. Exhibits trace the history of Dole and his pineapple industry, but there’s far more than history to be found here.
Get lost amongst Hawaiian plants in the world’s largest maze, ride the Pineapple Express train through the fruit fields, take a garden tour of the hibiscus, bromeliads and other tropical flowers, and dine on island cuisine at the Plantation Grille.
The Dole Plantation is in the center of Oahu, a 40-minute drive north of Waikiki. If you’re driving, follow the H1 and H2 highways to the Kamehameha Highway. Buses run from Waikiki to the Ala Moana shopping center, to connect with the Circle Island service; it’s an 1 hour 45-minute trip.
