Just outside of Hilo, Hawaii–the rainiest city in the U.S.–you’ll find Rainbow Falls. It is named for the beautiful rainbows seen in it in the morning light. Spending a morning, afternoon, or any part of a day here affords great views and time well spent.
Getting to the falls is a very brief walk on a paved path. For those feeling more adventurous, there’s a fun path around the left, under a giant banyan tree, and up the hill to the top of the falls.
To see Rainbow Falls in its full glory, come when the sun is rising in the morning. As the sun rises a bright rainbow cascades from the waterfall to the green pool below.
