Hilo Area Vacation Rentals

Hilo Area Travel Guide
Looking for a vacation rental home in the Hilo Area of the Big Island, Hawaii, United States? Hilo is a coastal town in the state of Hawaii. A lovely river with many waterfalls runs through the town. Hilo is the one of the best starting points to explore the eastern half of the island, including Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Your vacation rentals can be booked directly from owners of Hawaiian villas, homes and condo accommodations in the Hilo Area through Owner Direct.com.

Some places of interest are the historic downtown area, Kalakaua Park, Lyman Museum, Pacific Tsunami Museum, and the Palace Theatre. Visitors to Hilo may enjoy a trip to nearby Pana'ewa Rainforest Zoo, the only zoo in the united states situated within an actual rainforest.

Book your accommodations in your vacation rentals during the Merrie Monarch Festival where visitors may see both modern and ancient hula dancing and, enjoy great food.

Many of the activities that are available are daytime, and focus on the ocean. Surf culture is big and other ocean fun can be found at Richardson's Ocean Park at the end of Kalanianaole (Highway 19). This is a popular spot for family cookouts, and has occasional waves. Snorkeling is a popular activity here. Four Mile is a popular swimming spot, also located on Kalanianaole. Though there is no 'beach', it is rather like a large salt water swimming pool, with a sandy bottom, protected from the ocean by a reef. The water is colder, a mix of the ocean and fresh water springs.

Helicopter touring is popular, with flights over macadamia nut plantations to the lava flows at Kilauea. Kaumana caves are fun to explore and free. Pacific Tsunami Museum is a great place to learn about the tidal waves that have destroyed Hilo several times.

Hilo Art Museum is the island's only general art museum. It is in the historic Hilo Iron Works building with the best view of Hilo Bay. Enjoy breathtaking views Hilo Bay, Coconut Island, and 13,700 foot high Mauna Kea.
