This vibrant town offers a long list of incredible amenities amidst stunning natural beauty on the northeastern side of the island of Hawaii. It encompasses the Hilo International Airport and is only forty-five minutes north of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. 

Historically, Hilo was a fishing and farming community, however in the 1800s it evolved into a commercial hub for the sugar industry. Hilo has a crescent-shaped bay and its downtown was built around it, becoming the seat of county government. Today, restaurants, shops, art galleries, and museums comprise Downtown Hilo. Specific points of interest in Hilo include Liliʻuokalani Gardens, the East Hawaii Cultural Center, the Hilo Farmers Market, the newly built ʻImiloa Astronomy Center, the Pacific Tsunami Museum, and the Lyman Museum. Additional attractions in the Hilo area include Panaʻewa Rainforest Zoo, Peʻepeʻe Falls, and the 80-foot Waiānuenue (Rainbow Falls) at Wailuku River State Park.

Furthermore, Hilo is the largest city and the capital of the Big Island, and home to the University of Hawaii Hilo campus. Home to nearly forty-five thousand people, it has more than twenty-three percent of the island’s residents and a wide variety of housing options.
