A panoramic drive down Banyan Drive -- Hilo's Walk of Fame -- brings you to the Liliuokalani Garden. This is the most extensive Japanese-style garden outside of Asia, and a drive through it sets a very pretty picture indeed.
Your trip continues to Big Island Candies -- the source of perhaps the most enticing cookies and chocolates on the island of Hawaii. Your unwavering commitment to researching the quality of candy globally is the perfect excuse to make a purchase here.
Next up is the majestic statue of King Kamehameha overlooking Hilo Bay. This is quite meaningful to Big Island residents, as Kamehameha was the man responsible for unifying the Kingdom of Hawaii -- a somewhat brutal endeavor but a lasting legacy, nonetheless.
Visit the Farmer's Market in the heart of downtown Hilo and take photos during a stop at nearby Rainbow Falls.
At the Mauna Loa Macadamia Visitor Center, seize the opportunity to purchase Hawaii's most recognizable delights and indulgences.
Your last stop is at the bayfront black-sand beach in Hilo. See the sands and flows left by exploded lava along the coast. With a bit of luck, you may also spot green sea turtles on the beach, working on their tans and whiling away the day in an earnest state of slumber.
