Kualoa Ranch

The other week we went on a movie tour of the Kualoa Ranch. You can do a bus tour, an atv tour or a horse ride tour! But anywho, we got to see sites of where TONS of movies have been filmed. Did yo know that if they are filming something here, they still do the tours and just stop the cameras for them? SO SWEET! But no one was filming while we were there.

The Kualoa Ranch has thousands of acres where they do raise some cattle. Movies and shows like LOST, Mighty Joe Young, Journey 2, Jurassic Park, Pearl Harbor, George of the Jungle, Godzilla, 50 First Dates and at least 5 other more I forgot the names of were filmed in this area that we drove through!

The Kualoa Ranch wasn't always just a movie site or Ranch. During WWII it was a base! There are still some buildings and bunkers there that they show us. The trees are all grown up around it now, but with no trees at all, it was an ideal place to see north, east and south. Above is looking out to sea (North East). So I loved hearing some actual history of it too.
