West Side
Captain Cook's Monument
Located on the roadside in the rural town of Waimea in Hofgaard Park (also known as Tamago -- egg-shaped -- Park), is the site where British Captain James Cook first landed in Hawaii in 1778. Cook, with his ships the Resolution and Discovery, was the first westerner to discover the islands.
