Hilo

Located on the East side of the Big Island of Hawaii and overlooking the serenely beautiful Hilo Bay, the town of Hilo is a tranquil location that transports one back to Old Hawaii. With it’s historic buildings, locally owned shops and cafes, and countless waterfalls running down the nearby lush green mountains, Hilo is reminiscent of a simpler way of Hawaiian living. Being built at the base of two shield volcanos Hilo has become a tourist destination for travelers wanting, not only an authentic experience, but also a gateway to the Volcanos National Park located a short 45 minute drive upslope.
