What people say

"The sleepier side of the Big Island, Hilo is more tropical (read: more rain) and offers a great farmer's market, charming shops, and some great restaurants. If you're spending more than a few days on the island, it's worth the drive over to experience the other climates!"
"Hilo is a wonderful small town on the Big Island that is eclectic and charming. It has adorable shops and restaraunt to explore and colorful buildings making it just so very lovely. "
