Downtown Hilo - Historical commercial center

Downtown Hilo has a lot to offer if you appreciate small shops and like to see something besides chain stores and restaurants. Hilo has a special history and local flavor, and this is the place to experience it. There are several good restaurants, a great bookstore with items you won't find on the mainland, a classic old theater and a few galleries.

Volcanoes National Park

This is a top attraction not to be missed.


Don't miss the Pu'u Loa Petroglyph Trail, neat the end of the Chain of Craters Road
