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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Akaka Falls State Park and Imiloa Astronomy Center. Get out of town with these interesting Hilo side-trips: Waipiʻo Valley Lookout (in Honokaa), Kailua-Kona (Swim with Dolphins & Mauna Kea) and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Puako). There's still lots to do: take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, stop by Hilo Coffee Mill, admire the sheer force of Rainbow Falls, and admire the verdant scenery at Pololu Valley Lookout.
