Some of the Best food on the Island..!!! Along with beautiful live Hawaiian style singer, and a view into the red glow of the nearby crater as the sun sets, this is the perfect way to end your day if you visit Volcanoes National Park :!!! -- Be sure to make a reservation.

KONA COFFEE! If you are visiting Kona and love coffee, you have to visit a Kona coffee farm :] Many visitors don't know coffee at all but enjoy the tours thoroughly. This is the oldest certified organic Kona coffee farm, run by a quirky and lovable young couple - one is a scientist and the other an artist, both applying novel agricultural methods. They do everything from picking the coffeefruit to roasting the bean, on-site. Email or call them for tour - Appointment only!

A DELICIOUS bakery already, but also good to know during your long drives around the island! It is the only major food stop between Hilo and Kona if coming around the south end of the Island, so, nice to know :D

Great if you do, or don't, want to hike: Beautiful AMAZING Breathtaking hike through vibrant fern-Rainforest, then entering a Huge open, arid, vast crater that you can walk through. Or, you can just drive to the main area of the crater, and look over the huge edge down into the vast crater. All the while watching steam rising around you from the Earth! [ The other side entrance of this State Park, at Kalapana, is the Lava Flow, FYI. It is amazing to see but certainly a much longer day. ].

Life altering and amazing - Go at Sunset. Arrive just 1-2 hours before evening to see the sunset from the summit, then descend back to the Visitor's Center for daily, beautiful, and educational guided shows looking up at the thousands of stars!! BE SAFE - Research Health Risks FIRST. This is 9000 feet in elevation at the Visitor's Center, and 14000 at the Summit. You do not need AWD/4WD to reach the Visitor's Center, but you Do, for the Summit. Many skip the summit altogether and still have a very memorable time. CALL Ahead - the road is often close due to snow and blizzards and hail - Really -! Extra adventurous people camp here as well :]
