Dole Plantation, Hawaiian Pineapple Fun for Travel Tuesday

This week, I want to show you a fun place in Hawaii. If you ever find yourself on the island Oahu, I highly recommend you take the drive over to the Dole Plantation, which is near the famous North Shore.
It's both fun for you and fun for the family, with lot's of things to see and do while your there.



You can take a Pineapple Garden Tour, or run around the Pineapple Garden Maze. When you're done, head inside and have lunch right off their tasty grill.



Of course if your not in the mood for lunch, you must add one of their famous DoleWhip's. They are delicious and a great way to cool off on a warm Hawaiian day. (In fact I absolutely love these!)



Need a little more fun, hop onto their Pineapple Express Train Tour. This is a fun short 20 minute tour, they'll take you around a couple of miles of the plantation. Giving you stories and history along the way.



They also have a great gift shop, you can buy a souvenir, send some pineapple home to family or friends. Or buy some creative fun local favorites.



This is one of those places that are fun to visit. You could spend an hour or a few and relax and cool off in their gardens.
If your traveling to the North Shore for the day, it's definitely worth stopping at either on your way there or way back.





Have you been to the Dole Plantation before?
If you have, what's been your favorite part about it?
If you visit Oahu, is this a place you'd like to visit one day?

  1. I remember going here with my family when we were on a trip to Hawaii when I was a kid. My brother and I both really enjoyed it.

  2. I remember driving by the plantation when we were in Hawaii for our honeymoon, but we didn't actually stop. The pineapple fields were definitely beautiful to drive by!

  4. I love the Dole Plantation! I made sure to get a Dole Whip, even though we were headed to the North Shore for lunch. I figured get dessert now, then eat lunch.

  6. There are so many fun things to do in Oahu, I bet you visited lots of other fun stops instead! But I agree with you, the pineapple fields are a pretty sight!

  10. This is one thing I've wanted to do! I have always wanted to visit Hawaii but as you may know we had to cancel our trip last summer due to our ill dog. For some reason the trip doesn't seem that important now. I'm sure i'll get the travel bug back at some point though.

  12. This sounds like a total blast! I love everything about Pineapple, maybe most of all Hawaii! I've only been to Maui once but never Oahu. I wish Hawaii wasn't so far away.

  16. What? You only just had your first Pineapple pizza? That's been my favorite for years, LOL Well hey, better late than never to the Hawaiian pizza party, haha.
    I hope you get to Hawaii too one day! Of course you may have to leave the RV at home for that one, LOL But they do have beach camping too:)

  17. Your dog was far more important than that trip. I'm sure you'll get there one day!!! And when you do, you're going to love it:)

  18. If you make it when you still have your kids (as kids) they'll love it! My nieces and nephews love this place and have to stop here for a DoleWhip each trip there they take:)

  19. I'm a huge Pineapple lover too, I like almost anything pineapple. I even like roasted pineapple, LOL
    Oh I love Maui too, so beautiful. The islands are so different, well aside from the fact that they are islands LOL I wish it wasn't so far too, I'd visit far more often, awe in my dreams LOL

  20. Oh isn't it! I used to think fresh pineapple in a grocery store was the best. It wasn't until I had a taste of one picked literally directly off the plant and cut up right then and handed to me I realized OMG so much better!
    That is awesome you're trying to grow it on your own. I would love to try it, but Northern Utah not the best climate for it, LOL Hope you can get yours to work, that would be awesome!
    I'm glad you asked. I've got the May Giveaway hop scheduled to open tomorrow actually. Or technically midnight tonight:) Love to have you join us if it fits your schedule!!!
