Exploring Hawaii’s Big Island can be a big undertaking, but it doesn’t have to be. Avoid the stress of planning out all the details with this guided tour that includes round-trip transport, lunch, snacks, and bottled water for your convenience. Because there’s minimal walking distance during this tour, it’s perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels. Plus, if the weather gets dreary, rain gear is provided to keep you dry.

This place is one of our favorite Big Island bookstores, and we always stop here to peruse their excellent selection of Hawaii titles (some of which are difficult to find elsewhere). There’s also a nice array of gifts, music CDs, etc. that’ll make for great things to bring home too... the “new” location has lots of easy parking (compared to their former downtown spot), which makes our visits here even more enjoyable :) Check out Basically Books whenever you’re in Hilo town!

I like books and they had about the best selection of new books on the Island. Great variety with a lot of books on Hawaii. Great children's section, too.

This little book store was interesting and carried many items that ate island related. We were glad to find maps of the lava flows.
