Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Get a sense of the local culture at Pu'u Loa Petroglyphs and Volcano Art Center Gallery. Get in touch with nature at Akaka Falls State Park and Kīlauea. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Volcano: Punalu‘U Beach (in Pahala), Kalapana (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park) and Hilo (Rainbow Falls, Wailuku River State Park, &more). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kilauea Iki Trailhead, trek along Pu'u Huluhulu trail, and take a memorable drive along Devastation Trail.
