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 get in some beach time at 49 Black Sand Beach and Kahaluu Beach. Get in touch with nature at Akaka Falls State Park and Honaunau Bay. Get out of town with these interesting Hilo side-trips: Laupahoehoe Beach Park (in Laupahoehoe), Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Volcano Art Center, Kīlauea, & more) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Keauhou). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, look for gifts at Hilo Coffee Mill, enjoy the sand and surf at Richardson Beach Park, and admire the verdant scenery at Waipi'o Valley.
