Volcano

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Explore Volcano's surroundings by going to Hilo (Hilo Farmers Market, Liliuokalani Gardens, &more), Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden (in Papaikou) and The Umauma Experience (in Hakalau). There's lots more to do: hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, shop like a local with Volcano Art Center Gallery, and stroll through Sulphur Banks.

To find photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Volcano online day trip planner.

Boston to Volcano is an approximately 17-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Boston to Volcano due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Boston in November, expect Volcano to be much warmer, temps between 82°F and 68°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Lihue.

Lihue

Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Venture out of the city with trips to Waimea (Waimea Canyon State Park & Puu Hinahina Lookout), Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha) and Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei). And it doesn't end there: kick your exploration up a notch at Kauai Backcountry Adventures, kick back and relax at Poipu Beach Park, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and explore the striking landscape at Spouting Horn.

To see reviews, ratings, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Lihue trip planning site.

Traveling by flight from Volcano to Lihue takes 6 hours. Expect a daytime high around 81°F in November, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
