Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Thu): admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, stroll through Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then take a memorable drive along Devastation Trail, and finally trek along Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, shop like a local with Volcano Art Center, get impressive views of Kīlauea, then take in the natural beauty of Steam Vents, and finally get outside with Keanakakoi Crater Overlook.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Volcano online trip builder .

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and don't miss a visit to Battleship Missouri Memorial.
