Volcano, Island of Hawaii

— 2 nights
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 30th (Tue): whizz through the canopy at Hawaii Zipline Tours, admire the natural beauty at Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Garden, then admire the sheer force of Rainbow Falls, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens. Keep things going the next day: take in nature's colorful creations at Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, get impressive views of Kīlauea, see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, then hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and finally explore the striking landscape at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku).

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
