Volcano

Trip Planner USA  /  Hawaii  /  Island of Hawaii  /  Volcano
(4.6/5 based on 2,400+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: museums, parks, wineries
Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration. The town of 2,500--which serves as the main gateway for sightseeing in the nearby national park--provides convenient access to Kilauea's summit caldera. Volcano, though, offers much more than a place to sleep when you visit the park--a geological and historical museum, a winery, and restaurants serving up Hawaiian cuisine round out the visitor experience here. Surrounded by lush tropical forest, the town sits at an elevation of 1,143 m (3,750 ft), making it cooler than coastal cities. However, it still offers a comfortable average daily high of 19.5-22.4 C (67.1-72.4 F) throughout the year.

Where to stay in Volcano

Volcano remains compact, so accommodations are pretty straightforward. Bed and breakfasts, cottages, and lodges represent most of the options here, but you'll also find a couple of hostels/budget inns. Most establishments feature traditional Polynesian architecture. Many accommodations sit near the access road to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, but a few are set a bit farther away from it.
