Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 24th (Mon), view the masterpieces at 2400 Fahrenheit Art Glass, then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), and finally see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Volcano trip planner .

Newark to Volcano is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Newark to Volcano. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Newark in December: high temperatures in Volcano hover around 80°F and lows are around 65°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Kihei.
