Dole Plantation

A common tourist attraction on Oahu is the Dole Plantation. Here you can take a train ride and learn about pineapples and pineapple farming, or find your way through the worlds largest maze. For us, it is the best ice cream shop.

Before sampling the great treasures inside, we walked around the courtyard where there were many types of pineapples from all over the world. One interesting thing about pineapples - they look the same from the time they blossom to the time of harvest (18 month later!).

This is the goodness we came for - pineapple sherbet (they call it pineapple whip) in pineapple juice. Mmm Mmm Mmm!

A few seconds later, it looked like this. If you don't have time for the train or the maze, make time to get one of these (or any version of the pineapple whip!).
