Hilo

— 2 nights

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.
Kick off your visit on the 15th (Wed): hike along Sulphur Banks, then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and then examine the collection at Jagger Museum. Keep things going the next day: shop like a local with Hilo Farmers Market, admire the sheer force of Akaka Falls State Park, then see the interesting displays at Pacific Tsunami Museum, then admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, and finally see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read our Hilo vacation planner.

Los Angeles to Hilo is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Los Angeles to Hilo. September in Hilo sees daily highs of 86°F and lows of 71°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly back home.
