Hilo, Hawaii: Big Community Surrounded by Natural Beauty
On the island of Hawaii’s eastern side you’ll find Hilo, a community tucked between beautiful forest reserves and the Pacific Ocean. Day trips to the Upper Waiakea Forest Reserve and others in the area take hikers to trails surrounded by tropical plants. The largest settlement on The Big Island, Hilo also has a developed downtown with shops, restaurants, galleries, and theaters. Make sure to visit the Pacific Tsunami Museum, the state’s only museum dedicated to education about the 1946 tsunami that devastated Hawaii. Another must-see is Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano about 43 miles northwest of Hilo. Considered one of the most sacred peaks in Hawaii, it has hiking trails and important summit observatories.
