On your next trip to Hilo make sure to consider employing our Hilo car hire services as your main means of transportation through and around town. Hilo is the largest city in Hawaii County as well as its seat of government and it is also one of the best starting points when it comes to exploring the eastern part of the island.
The city is served by the Hilo Airport and when you land there you can employ our Hilo car rental services to have a car of your choice ready and waiting for you at the airport. Considering that there’s basically no public transportation in the city, car rental is definitely the way to go.
The town offers quite a few attractions to its visitors, ranging from the natural to the traditional museums.
The Pacific Tsunami Museum for instance is a living memorial meant to remind new generations about the death and devastation that a tsunami can bring with it. The Hawaiian Islands are susceptible to such phenomenons, being that they are volcanic islands, but the city hasn’t been hit by one since 1960.
The Lyman House Museum on the other hand is a fully restored missionary house which also features small collections of local artwork and historical exhibits as well as the ninth-best mineral collection in the country.
For a bit more art you can visit the Hilo Art Museum which is the Big Island’s sole general art museum which features a growing collection of art from all across the globe.
One sight that you cannot miss is Rainbow Falls. You should try to visit it during the beginning of the day as this will increase the chances of the mist creating a rainbow. Reaching the Boiling Pots will require a bit of hiking.
The Naha Stone is another one interesting and mythical-type of attraction as it was prophesied that he who will move it, and it should be noted that it weights five thousand pounds, would eventually unite all the Hawaiian islands. The legend says that King Kamehameha did that at fourteen, not only moving it but also lifted it end over end.
These are just a few of the things that you can see and do while in Hilo so make sure to employ our Hilo car hire services on your trip there.
