We stopped off in Waimea en route up the Kohala coast and it really did have the feel of a old-fashioned American town. The shops we went into were all incredibly friendly but with no compulsion to buy if you didn't want to. The lovely...More

Who would have ever thought a beautiful Western town on the Big Island of Hawaii?! It was such a nice stop to walk about the shops, talk to the friendly people and view Mauna Kea with it's snow cap. Simply amazing!!!

Nice drive up the mountain from Waikoloa. The weather was approximately 20 degrees cooler and there was a nice mist. Small town charm. We ate at Island Burger near the Parker Ranch store.

Its less than an hour's drive to Waimea. For tourists Waimea is a nice atypical Hawaiian experience. It's cool, has a cowboy ranch history and mentality, and lots of quaintness, including,arguably, the best restaurant in Hawaii-Merriman's.
