Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Papakōlea Green Sand Beach and Laupahoehoe Beach Park. Escape the urban bustle at Kilauea Iki Trailhead and Kulanaokuaiki Campground. Step out of Volcano with an excursion to Akaka Falls State Park in Hilo--about 1h 10 min away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, view the masterpieces at Volcano Art Center, and identify plant and animal life at Devastation Trail.
