Hilo Hilo International Airport. ITO

Hilo is a town of about 45,000 population with a good harbor and airport. The town still has its old Hawaiian style atmosphere with lots of friendly people. There are lots of water falls, parks and several art galleries, as well as several beach parks. The downtown area has preserved most of its interesting early 1900's architecture. The Big Island is the most diverse of all the islands, in many ways. We recommend Googling some of these attractions on the island: Liliuokalani Japanese Garden, Rainbow Falls, Wailoa State Park, Wailoa Art Center, Boiling Pots State Park, Akaka Falls State Park, Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Garden, Waipio Valley Tours, Parker Ranch Country in Waimea, Hapuna Beach State Park (a great white sand beach), star gazing at the Mauna Kea Visitor's Center, Kailua-Kona deep sea fishing charters, underwater tour by submarine, Captain Cook Kayak and swim with wild spinner dolphins, and Volcanoes National Park - much to see there including current eruption.

We are a retired couple, having managed a small newspaper distribution business on Maui and the Big Island for 45 years.  We also owned and managed rental properties in Colorado for 25 years which we liquidated a few years ago.  We both love to travel and do sight seeing with special interest in architecture, gardens, natural beauty, and hot springs.  Steve enjoys hiking, mountain biking, ocean kayaking, fishing, and especially nature photography.  Nicole likes to swim in our pool and in the ocean and loves to read.  We have two grown children and 3 grown grandchildren - the youngest turns 18 this year, sigh!
