The Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a magical place for the first timer. We started with a pretty long hike around one of the craters - our choice, you can drive, park, look. where we saw what looked like a Mars landscape as well as multiple kinds of solidified lava. The scope of everything was amazing - so big!! Then we did the craters drive down to the water - 45 minute drive - and we came to a HUGE lava field with sweeping views of the ocean and the coastline. The wind must have been 40 mph at least and it was solidified lava as far as we could see. So beautiful! The water at the end was so blue and clean we could see the rock formations on the ocean floor quite a way out. You really have to see it to believe it.

The Park Rangers went out of their way to give us information and suggestions where to go look at the craters. It was raining that day so we only went to view 2 spots and did a bit of hiking.

Travelled there with my parents. On the day we visited it was raining which kept the crowds down. There is no lava but plenty of geological sites including historical lava flows, calderas and active calderas (with plenty of steam vents). This is the place to go when you are at the big Island.

It was raining like crazy when we went here from Hilo last week when they had almost 3 feet of rain fall in 2 days! The steam vents were nice and warm and the caldera is huge. I didn't think there would be so many trees there. Saw others hiking. Had to buy a 7 day pass for $30, nothing for 1 day....

lots of interesting terrain that you can't hike on most other places - fresh lava fields, beautiful down by the ocean on the chain of craters road
