Big Island: final details advice-help!

Jump to last reply

Thanks to everyone that provided advice on my other topic of where to stay during our upcoming trip to the Big Island!

Now I'm trying to finalize some activities-of course leaving time for just plain old/simple exploring. But I want to be sure that we don't miss out on any: you should do this!

Family (myself, my two sons ages 4 and 7 and husband) will be staying at Four Seasons in Kona in a week for a week. While husband is working, me and the kids will of course enjoy the resort.

But in the between meeting times for my husband- we would love to explore the surrounding area...any suggestions of good local restaurants (preferably no chains found on mainland), places to go and explore (we will have a rental car)...a luau?

Then during the two days on our trip (full day on Friday and full day Saturday) we will be staying at the Waikoloa resort area and I'm looking for again: local restaurants, things to not miss, a luau in this area perhaps? we may do a day trip into Hilo (poss the farmers market)...we are thinking to skip the volcano national park this time and save it for the next time we visit.

Thoughts? When I try to do research-I just find old blogs or old information from a couple of years ago.
