Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Volcano Art Center and Jagger Museum. Visiting Kilauea Iki Trailhead and Akaka Falls State Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu), Hilo (Liliuokalani Gardens & Hilo Farmers Market) and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (in Honaunau). There's lots more to do: hike along Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, take a stroll through Kalapana, and explore and take pictures at Devastation Trail.

To find maps, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Volcano tour app .

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Escape the urban bustle at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve and Sunset Beach Park. Do some cultural sightseeing at USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie), Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park, Lanikai Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, enjoy the sand and surf at Waikiki Beach, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.
