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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at 49 Black Sand Beach and Holei Sea Arch. Your inner history buff will appreciate Puukohola Heiau and Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs. Venture out of the city with trips to Laupahoehoe Beach Park (in Laupahoehoe), Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Devastation Trail & Kalapana) and Puukohola National Historic Park (in Kawaihae). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Richardson Beach Park, make a trip to Pepeekeo Scenic Drive, admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, and experience rural life at Honomu Goat Dairy.
