Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration. The town of 2,500--which serves as the main gateway for sightseeing in the nearby national park--provides convenient access to Kilauea's summit caldera. Volcano, though, offers much more than a place to sleep when you visit the park--a geological and historical museum, a winery, and restaurants serving up Hawaiian cuisine round out the visitor experience here. Surrounded by lush tropical forest, the town sits at an elevation of 1,143 m (3,750 ft), making it cooler than coastal cities. However, it still offers a comfortable average daily high of 19.5-22.4 C (67.1-72.4 F) throughout the year. Use our United States day trip planning site to arrange your visit to Volcano and other destinations in United States.
