Hilo, Island of Hawaii

America's Wettest City

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Pololu Valley Lookout, Waipio Valley and Boiling Pots. Explore hidden gems such as Kīlauea and Kealakekua Bay. Visiting Richardson Beach Park and Carlsmith Beach Park will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Hilo: Waipiʻo Valley Lookout (in Honokaa), Kehena Black Sand Beach (in Pahoa) and Kawaihae (Puukohola National Historic Park & Puukohola Heiau). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Kalapana, look for all kinds of wild species at Kona Cloud Forest, take in the spiritual surroundings of The Painted Church, and enjoy the sand and surf at Laupahoehoe Beach Park.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
