Parker Ranch

Up north in the district of Waimea, green, undulating hills roll into the horizon. This is Hawai‘i’s cowboy country and home of Parker Ranch, one of the largest (and oldest) ranches in the United States. Decades before cowboys existed in the American West, they roamed the pastures of what is now the 130,000-acre ranch. Learn the story of Hawai‘i’s paniolo at the Parker Ranch Museum and visitor’s center, or book a horseback riding tour. The Parker Ranch Store offers lots of paniolo-themed souvenirs.
