  • Tropical Farms - Famously known as “The Little Country Store on Your Way to the North Shore.” What started as a tiny roadside operation in 1987 is now a great place to try different local snacks and learn how to crack open some macadamia nuts while the farmstand's chickens wait nearby hoping you drop a nut or two.
  • North Shore Lunch Stop - Your driver will update you on the daily menu and determine a great place for everyone to enjoy a delicious lunch before driving alongside the world-famous North Shore Oahu coastline on our way to the next adventure.
