America's Wettest City
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. The town also is home to many urban tourist attractions, notably the island's only general art museum. The walkable downtown is a must-do on most tourist itineraries, as it offers everything from well-supplied stores and farmers' markets to trendy restaurants and small ice cream parlors. Despite its touristy character, Hilo manages to maintain a slow-paced way of life, its "kama'aina" (born-and-raised Hawaiians) always finding time for a drink and a chat. Because it has an international airport, the city is a convenient starting point for any trips to the eastern half of the island. Hilo is in Island of Hawaii.
