I actually have 2 questions -
We (family of 4) are planning a 10 day trip to Hawaii in Dec. Originally I was planning only on Maui and Oahu, but the lure of an active volcano on Hawaii makes me want to do a quick trip (1 day, 1 night) there as well. Is this really such a WOW experience and worth the effort?
If we do decide to go, are there good condo accommodations near Hilo? My choice woul be to stay close to the Volcano Natnal Park and not drive all the way from Kona, but I would like a condo with some reasonable grocery shopping nearby.
Any thoughts/help much appreciated.
