Hilo, Island of Hawaii

America's Wettest City

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Change things up with these side-trips from Hilo: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Kilauea Iki Trailhead, Nature & Wildlife Tours, &more) and Jagger Museum (in Volcano). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Akaka Falls State Park, stop by Hilo Coffee Mill, and take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Heart of the Kona Coast

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Mon): take an in-depth tour of Kona Coffee Living History Farm, then explore the striking landscape of Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park, then stroll through Kahaluu Beach, and finally fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. Keep things going the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at Mauna Kea Beach and then immerse yourself in nature at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area.

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.
