Lyon Arboretum is my kind of vacation activity. Off the beaten path, no throngs of tour buses parked in the parking lot. I feel like this is the kind of place I had in mind when I decided to visit Hawaii, and I'm sure many others would agree. I did a self-guided tour, and I was lucky that it wasn't raining the day I was there. I wandered around for an hour or so, and I could have easily stayed longer if it wasn't for the bugs (mosquitos?). I'm not sure if regular bug spray would've done the trick, but I'll definitely try it the next time I come!
Lots of birds in the area, so this is probably great for anyone into bird watching as well. I really enjoyed taking photos of the plants, trees, etc. Very picturesque and very peaceful. Highly recommend, and wear comfortable walking shoes.
