Fodor's Review

More than a bookstore, this bay-front shop stocks one of Hawaii's largest selections of maps, including topographical and relief maps, and Hilo's largest selection of Hawaiian music. Of course, it also has a wealth of books about Hawaii, including great choices for children. If you're in need of an umbrella on a rainy Hilo day, this bookstore has plenty of them. Open seven days a week.
