At the center of the east side of the Big Island of Hawaii is historic downtown Hilo. Hilo has many hidden gems. Visitors can discover lush tropical rainforests, streaming waterfalls, exotic agricultural farms, and a local farm to fork dining. Hilo is also close to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park where you can explore lava tubes, sea arches and an active volcano. Stroll along Hilo Bayfront Kamehameha Avenue and stop by Hawaii Forest & Trail retail location where you can pick up adventure gear, locally made souvenirs and keepsakes. Talk story with staff there, or at the Hilo Hawaiian Hotel activity desk, where helpful staff can guide you to your next Big Adventure!
