Magical. Educational. Vast and beautiful. HVNP is one of the top rated and most visited sites of all Islands. Go there and be amazed. If it's not on your bucket list, it should be!

Worth the 1 hr drive from the house or about 30 minutes outside of Hilo. Short hike with a spectacular views of Akaka Falls. You may also want to explore one of my favorite little towns on the way there or on your way back. Called Honomu :)!!

Beautiful easy hike in the Lava Tree State Park. Definitely check it out. In this area nearby you can also respectfully view up close the giant and vast lava flow fields. While there is not a single drop of active lava anymore, you can be mesmerized by exploring the hardened lava rock flows of the 2018 eruption. It is fascinating and sad at the same. So ALWAYS PRACTICE being respectful and caution in these areas. Mahalo

Experience where one of the 2018 Kilauea Volcano lava eruption came to an end, literally at the beach. It is mesmerizing, magical, beautiful and fascinating to see for yourself. Here you can also (at your discretion) swim/enter “new warm ponds” or sun bath on giant black sand beach and swim. This part of the ocean specifically after the eruption has become more for advanced swimmers, always use caution and safe swimming. Note; there are only portable bathroom and no beach showers

One of the best beaches in Hilo and just a 30 minute drive from the house. Keep in mind It can get busy on weekends. But of course because it’s an awesome beach! This beach is known to have Sea Turtles hanging around in/out of the water. NOTE; always use caution and respect when or if you encounter Sea Turtles. They may approach you naturally but please don’t approach them or touch them. Hawai’i state laws are strictly enforced it may seem silly but should taken seriously. Mahalo

Love this spot especially on warm days! You’ll need to look up “Ice Ponds Hilo” to find your way. But it’s basically along the same street/area in Hilo where you’ll find other great beaches too. It’s about a 30 minutes drive or less from the house

One more local option for your grocery needs. I personally don't shop here much because it can be just as pricey as Island Naturals. So I'd rather just stick with my favorite grocery store. I only shop here in a pinch.

I shop here. Great store for groceries or a little bit of local shopping too. Prices are usually a bit less here, it’s also on the way as you drive out of Hilo to Pahoa.

Sightseeing

50 minutes North of downtown Hilo, visit the last true plantation town in the state of Hawaii. Lots of history. Such a cute/small town to take in. Then make your way thru Honokaa by car to the Waipio Valley lookout. Total time from my home in Ainaloa is about 1hr and 1/2 one way. A beautiful drive with all kinds of gems along the way.
