Located at the end of Manoa Road is Lyon Arboretum, one of Honolulu’s most precious hidden gems. The lush botanical gardens stretch across 194 acres, featuring more than 8,000 plant species from all over the world. Keep an eye out for white-rumped Shama thrushes, cockatoos, cardinals, mynas and other singing birds as you stroll past towering breadfruit trees, exotic palms, and a native Hawaiian garden. Visiting the Arboretum is one of the top things to do in Honolulu if you are looking to see the beauty of Hawaiian vegetation all in one spot. The grounds are meticulously maintained, complementing the aesthetic beauty of the dense collection of flowering plants and trees.
