Fodor's Review

More than a bookstore, this bayfront 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 books about Hawaii, including great choices for children. Open seven days a week.
