Kaua'i's Waimea Canyon is called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific for good reason! It is wide, deep and beautiful, sporting many of the same orange and red colors as the real Grand Canyon in Arizona. Though much shorter in length, it does have a beautiful waterfall within view of the rim. It also has the advantage of having way fewer visitors than the grand canyon -- there were never more than 10 cars in the parking lot any time we've visited.

Address: On Koke?e Road (Highway 550), Kauai
