Parker Ranch is one of our nation's oldest and most historic ranches and is counted among the largest ranches in the United States with nearly 250 horses and over 35,000 cattle.
Founded in 1847 by John Parker, a New Englander who jumped ship on the Big Island and married the daughter of a member of the Hawaiian royalty, it is also the home of Hawaii's cowboys - the paniolo. Paniolos are a tough, hard-riding breed who for six generations have worked the Parker Ranch.
The ranch is open daily and features historic home tours, cattle country tours, horseback and ATV rides, shopping and dining.
