Default Thread Title:  Visiting Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park

Aloha!

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is an amazing place to visit, and is the most popular attraction in the entire state, after all, it is home to one of the world’s most active yet “user-friendly” volcanoes, Kilauea, and it is Hawaii’s ONLY World Heritage Site. Be sure to arrive in the daytime, and get your bearings at the Visitor Center, where rangers can show you where the action is, and help you plan a great experience depending on how much time you have. Right now, Halemaumau Crater is active and a beautiful plume of steam and gas is visible in the daytime. If you choose to stay after dark, at night you can see a the mesmerizing crimson glow from the lava below the surface reflecting into the plume. This crater is the legendary home of Pele, Hawaii’s volcano goddess. Other park highlights include Thurston Lava Tube and the Chain of Craters Road, hiking Kilauea Iki and much more. Visit www.nps.gov/havo for more information. If you’re driving over from West Hawaii, be sure to save some time to visit historic downtown Hilo – its shops, museums, restaurants and world famous farmers market have made it one of the Big Island’s top “small town” destinations.

Mahalo and enjoy!
