Many people looking to escape the coastal heat enjoy the cooler weather of Waimea, which could easily be called the land of rainbows. The town stretches along several miles of highway, and has distinct “wet” and “dry” sides. In the center of town where they meet, you will often see rainbows in the afternoon as rain and sun mix together, an amazing view from every single Waimea vacation rentals. No matter what the weather, views of the two mountains flanking the town are always gorgeous.
Parker Ranch, the largest private ranch in the United States, is essentially the genesis of this town. This area is heavily dominated by paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) culture, a unique blend of Hawaiians with the early Latino cowboys who came to tame the wild cattle here in the 1800s. Ranch life is still prominent today, as you’ll see if you happen to be here on a rodeo weekend. Farming is also huge, and consequently, Waimea is probably the best place on the island for farmers’ markets; there are four on Saturday mornings, and one all day Wednesday at Pukalani Stables.

Waimea is also the headquarters for several of the telescopes on Mauna Kea, and Keck Observatory has a visitor’s center in town that’s open most days.
