Hilo, Hawaii: A Dazzling Destination
Hilo is the fourth largest city in Hawaii, stretching from the Wailuku River to Hilo Bay. It's nicknamed "The City of Rainbows" because of the beautiful formation of colorful arches when falling mists meet with the morning sun rays. To travel here is to roam around paradise, and a car rental allows you to maneuver through the traffic as you please and map out the vacation of your dreams.
Explore the Wonders of Hilo
Hilo is considered one of the best places to start exploring Eastern Hawaii. Whether you're arriving via an inter-island airline or visiting from a cruise ship, this traditional town welcomes you with an awesome to-do list. You can pick up your car rental and maximize the time you spend sightseeing and relaxing.
Only 15 minutes from the airport and located in the Bayfront district is Orchidland Surf, the center of surf culture. Another incredible ocean destination is Richardson's Ocean Park, an estimated 20-minute drive from Orchidland Surf. This beach spot is popular for cookouts, snorkeling and relaxing since there are fewer waves along the shore.
Those who just want to swim can drive down the Four Mile Scenic Route. The drive leads to a swimming spot protected from the ocean by a reef. Renting an SUV or a jeep is preferable if you want to go off-roading in this area.
Drive just 45 minutes from Richardson's to the Kaumana Caves and explore all of its magnificence for free. Don't forget to bring your own flashlight and a thirst for fun and adventure. When it's time to return to the city, you may want to stop at the beautiful Liliuokalani Park and Gardens, located just 15 minutes from the caves.
