Downtown Hilo/Farmer’s Market

Hawaii's easternmost town is a historic place to shop and explore

Historic Downtown Hilo is a quaint destination, featuring centuries-old wooden storefronts — many of which are on the National Register of Historic Places — with sophisticated galleries, shops, restaurants and cultural sites tucked inside. 

Be sure to visit the Pacific Tsunami Museum for a glimpse into the town’s dramatic past, and the daily farmer’s market, so you can enjoy the seasonal local produce.
