. : The Dole Visitor Center in Wahiawa
We just left the North Shore for the last attraction because we feel you will really enjoy this site and itís less than 30 minutes from Hale Kimo. Jimís Dad worked at the cannery for Dole, formerly Hawaiian Pineapple Company, for 30 years, so Jim grew up in the cannery!
This is a perfect place to stop on your way to or from Costco or Honolulu. Look at the beautiful plantation house surrounded by pineapple fields. Learn the fascinating story of pineapple in Hawaii started by Jim Dole. This is the home of Hawaiiís freshest pineapple served in every conceivable fashion- most delicious. See the variety garden with pineapples from all over the world; horse rides; souvenirs; snacks galore; gifts for people back home. Don't get lost in the Pineapple Garden Maze and be sure to take the Pinapple Express train ride. Something for everyone. It's fun to act young again!
Easy to spend a couple of hours here. They're open from 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM daily. Closed Christmas Day. Donít miss this attraction.
This concludes our special North Shore Tour. We thank you for joining us and hope you enjoyed it as much as we have in bringing it to you. Please send us your comments on the "Tour" -- we'd love to hear from you. Better yet, "book" Hale Kimo and see it for yourselves! You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
