Hilo, Hawaii

Located at the foot of two volcanoes and overlooking the spectacular Hilo Bay, Hilo is the ideal destination for those who wish to catch a glimpse of the rough beauty of Hawaii's coastlines and fiery mountains. The city is known to locals as the "biggest small town" on the island, giving it a great combination of small-town aloha spirit and access to the kinds of shops and restaurants that make a vacation memorable.

Many visitors call this cultural center home during their stay in Hawaii. With a central location perfect for beginning your exploration of the natural beauty of the Hawaiian landscape, it's also a great base for a helicopter tour for a more in-depth look at all the area has to offer.
