Hi all, I am visiting the Island of Hawaii in late November and would appreciate some advice on where to stay. Specifically, would Hawi be a good home base for a week?
We will be spending 3 days on the East coast, and then plan to head to the West coast for a week. Hawi sounds like a perfect town for us, (a bit out off the beaten track, interesting art and architecture, hiking, etc) but we are also ardent explorers and worry that it will take too long to get to other places on the East coast or North shore.
Would it make more sense to break this part of our trip into two? Spend 4 nights in Hawi and then 4 nights in Captain Cook or thereabouts?
Thanks very much for your thoughts,
p.s. SheaG and KamaainaK - I appreciate all the information you have added to these posting boards. It has been fun to read your comments and very helpful.
