Photogenic and worth the stop but stopping will be be a bit tricky. Nicknamed the 3 Bears, there is a poppa sized one, a mumma one and a baby bear. They are on the right as you cross one of the many narrow one-way bridges....More

The first time I did the Road to Hana I only admired these beauties from the road and I'm so glad this time around I made the trek to the bottom. If you are older or not physically fit the extremely short hike down might...More
