This historic road (also known as Highway 180) is a delight to drive. It is only a few miles, the best part being between the old Hawaiiana town of Holualoa (famous for its art local art galleries, coffee farms and coffee roasters) until it merges into Highway 11 (also known as the Beltway) near Captain Cook. The foliage along the roadway is beautiful and, if you are lucky, you will smell the aroma of coffee roasting at some of the local roasters. Be sure to stop at Keauhou Store along the way, which is a throwback to a time in Hawaii that has largely disappeared.
