Cattle Ranch tours?

Planning vacation with teenagers in July. Any suggestions on cattle ranch tours, great hotels/resorts, Pearl Harbor, etc. Of course we want to stay on the beach but we would like to see the sights too. Thanks!

We need a lot more info before we can even begin to help you. Which island are you visiting? What is your budget? Like and dislikes of those in the family? Will you be renting a car?

Not sure yet which island - wanted to see what was recommended. Yes, renting a car. Budget - of course best bang for our buck. We raise show cattle and would like to check out some registered cattle ranches if possible - not really wanting to do the horseback thing but would be up for ATVs. Want to stay at beach property either hotel or rental but want some adventure too. 16 and 18 year old girls. Definitely want to see Pearl Harbor.

Thank you so much for your suggestions!

There are cattle ranches on the Big Island of Hawaii, Maui and Oahu. Don't know about Kauai!! Pearl Harbor is on the island of Oahu. Will you want to island hop? Not cheap, but can be done. Still don't know what your budget is and it's hard to recommend things when we don't know which island you would like to go to. A good resource that we recommend is Hawaii for Dummies. Don't laugh, I own it. It will give a an overall perspective on each of the islands. We also don't recommend doing more than 2 islands in less than 10 days.

When in July will you be visiting?

Late-July is when the State of Hawaii Farm Fair is typically held in Honolulu.

It used to always be at Aloha Stadium, but last year it was on the grounds of the Bishop Museum.

Dates haven't been announced as yet (that I can find anyway).

On Oahu, the largest remaining ranch (I think) is the North Shore Cattle Company.
