Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Sat): see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, then hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and then shop like a local with Volcano Garden Arts.

To see more things to do, maps, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Volcano trip planner .
