Hilo is the largest city on the island of Hawaii, also known
as Big Island. The city overlooks Hilo Bay, and is near two
mountains, Mauna Loa, an active volcano, and Mauna Kea, upon which
several astronomical observatories are placed. Hilo straddles a
tranquil river with pools, waterfalls and lush vegetation. It has
an old-fashioned comfortable feel.
Area activities include snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing and
more. Hilo is home to Pana'ewa Zoo, the only zoo in the United
States that is situated in a rainforest with a focus on indigenous
flora and fauna.
Other area attractions include Coconut Island, Kehena Beach,
Honoli' Beach Park, and James Kealoha Park.
