America's Wettest City
One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes. The town also is home to many urban tourist attractions, notably the island's only general art museum. The walkable downtown is a must-do on most tourist itineraries, as it offers everything from well-supplied stores and farmers' markets to trendy restaurants and small ice cream parlors. Despite its touristy character, Hilo manages to maintain a slow-paced way of life, its "kama'aina" (born-and-raised Hawaiians) always finding time for a drink and a chat. Because it has an international airport, the city is a convenient starting point for any trips to the eastern half of the island. Make the most of your holiday in Hilo by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our United States trip itinerary builder app.
