Most of Hilo's hotels are located on Banyan Drive.
A sign at the base of each banyan tree on the road
tells you who planted it. Some famous planters include
Richard Nixon, Babe Ruth, and Amelia Earhart. In a
weird coincidence, a flood washed Nixon's tree away
on the day he became vice president. He planted another
one...the flood waters were heard muttering "I
am not a crook!"
