Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Change things up with these side-trips from Volcano: Pu'u Huluhulu trail (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park), Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden (in Papaikou) and Hilo (Liliuokalani Gardens, Mokupapapa Discovery Center, & more). Spend the 11th (Sun) among the fascinating landscape of Kulanaokuaiki Campground. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kilauea Iki Trailhead, take in the exciting artwork at Volcano Art Center, hike along Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, and cruise along Devastation Trail.

To find reviews, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Volcano travel route builder site .

New York City to Volcano is an approximately 16-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Volcano due to the time zone difference. Prepare for warmer weather when traveling from New York City in November: high temperatures in Volcano hover around 82°F and lows are around 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can drive to Kailua-Kona.
