Panaewa Rainforest Zoo & Gardens
Billed as "the only natural tropical rain-forest zoo in the United States," this sweet zoo is the home of white Bengal tiger, Namaste. You'll see variety of native Hawaiian species, such as Hawaii's state bird, the nene goose, the io (hawk), as well as lots of other rare birds, monkeys, and lemurs. Namaste's daily 3:30 feeding is quite the sight. Donations welcome. www.hilozoo.com. COST: Free but donations encouraged. OPEN: Daily 9--4, except Christmas.
