The Big Island, Hawaii Week
DURING THE DAY: Diverse and beautiful attractions beckon you to explore: Dramatic waterfalls, black sand beaches, lava deserts, undulating ranch lands, and lush tropical rain forests evocative of the "old" South Seas are just some of the wonders.
Here, uncommon beauty is commonplace. You can set out to watch dolphins play, snorkel, explore the tide pools alive with colorful fish, or dip into warm springs. Hike Volcanoes National Park. Take a helicopter ride to view Kilauea, an incredible natural phenomenon, the world's most active volcano. Visit botanical gardens, natural steam vents, and historic villages. The southeast coast offers sunny days, balmy breezes, occasional showers, and brilliant rainbows. Daytime temperatures average 75 degrees F.
What a great time! I still wear this unwieldy smile that makes folks here at home wonder...
What's he so happy about?"
AT NIGHT: We gather for a sumptuous buffet-style dinner featuring wholesome vegetarian foods, fresh fish and chicken options, and local Hawaiian fruits and produce. Evenings come alive with dance and music under an airy canopy on a large, suspended wooden dance floor.
