Big Island Advice Needed

Jump to last reply

Traveling to Big Island Hawaii in a couple of weeks (early April) Husband has work event and me and two kiddos ages 7 and 4 are tagging along. We will be staying at Four Seasons for the majority of the week. Friday morning we check out and we fly out of Kona on Sunday at around noon. We will have a car to use.

Question-since we will be in Kona the whole week, should we try to stay in Hilo on Friday night and then someplace close to Kona on Saturday night? And no, extending stay in Four Seasons will not be an option for us (out of budget range).

Need advice on should we do it, where can we stay for one night-I looked at airbnb and the like but there's usually a hefty cleaning fee even for one night...what to do in Hilo area? I read a lot about Volcanoes probably being not the best idea for our kids. So is it worth going to Hilo side for one night to explore?
