Around the Island 

All over the Big Island, you will encounter friendly people and quaint villages that reflect the many cultures of the island, from Waimea/Kamuela with the paniolo Hawaiian cowboys at Parker Ranch to the artist town of Volcano near the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the old plantation era town of Hilo with its store fronts along the scenic Hilo Bay.  Hawaii Island is one of the rare places on Earth where you can go from tropical beaches to the freezing alpine zones atop Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes where it snows in the winter months.  Enjoy the following links as you take an arm chair ride and explore the natural wonders and cultural diversity of Hawaii!
