Hilo ©
One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Honaunau Bay. Do some cultural sightseeing at Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs. Get out of town with these interesting Hilo side-trips: Jagger Museum (in Volcano), Kailua-Kona (Mauna Kea, Dolphin & Whale Watching, & more) and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), & more). Spend the 12th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Akaka Falls State Park, take a memorable tour with Tours, look for gifts at Waikoloa Beach Resort, and savor the flavors at Hilo Farmers Market.

For ratings, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, read Hilo trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in January, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
