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.
Get out of town with these interesting Hilo side-trips: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Sulphur Banks, Kilauea Iki Trailhead, &more). There's still lots to do: immerse yourself in nature at Akaka Falls State Park, get a new perspective on nature at Mokupapapa Discovery Center, admire the natural beauty at Liliuokalani Gardens, and take in the exciting artwork at Extreme Exposure Fine Art Gallery.

To find where to stay, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, go to the Hilo road trip site.

Portland to Hilo is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Portland to Hilo. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Portland in August since evenings lows in Hilo dip to 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel to Poipu.
