Grand Solmar Timeshare lays out a quick tour of the Big Island as an idea for a short vacation to Hawaii.
A weeklong vacation isn’t always feasible, so Grand Solmar Timeshare is offering some suggestions for a shorter trip to Hawaii. Hopefully there’s a long weekend available to squeeze in a quick vacation and still see some amazing sights.
Start day one with outdoor activities around the area of Kona. There are some beautiful west coast beaches and sights, including Kealakekua Bay and the James Cook Monument. This British Sea Captain James Cook was one of the first Westerners to arrive on the big island. He was killed about a month later at the hands of the Hawaiians. There is now a 27 foot obelisk marking the spot and the location doubles as a very popular snorkeling location.
A few miles south is the City of Refuge, also called Honaunau Bay. When Hawaiian lived under strict laws, offenders were persecuted, unless they could reach a place of refuge. Then they could be absolved of their sin and return home safely. Puuhona O Honaunau is the most famous and best preserved ancient site of refuge.
Close by is Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, a must see. If you have time, check out the Jaggar Museum named after the MIT geologist who studied and observed volcanoes in the early 1900s. There is an overlook outside of the museum that boasts a panoramic view of Kilauea Caldera, which at night can extend to see the gas eruption of Halema’uma’u crater. With lava tubes, sulfur banks, and calderas there is plenty of living geology to see at the park.
Another great park is Lava Tree State Park, which features a forest of lava trees. When the flow swept through this area in 1790, the tree trunks were surrounded and molds have been formed of them. There is a trail loop that is a bit less than 1 mile and may prove difficult for inexperienced hikers or children. Grand Solmar Timeshare thinks would be a really nice place for a picnic lunch.
Grand Solmar Timeshare encourages vacationers to take a trip to ‘Akaka Falls State Park and the World Botanical Gardens if time allows. The former sugar town of Honokoa’a Town is a great place to grab a bite to eat before heading to the Waipi’p Valley overlook. The Valley of the Kings is a great site to see from the end of the highway.
Grand Solmar Timeshare hopes vacationers will put Hawaii on their lists of destinations this year. For more information on these attractions, or assistance with accommodations, contact Grand Solmar Timeshare today. Visit http://grandsolmartimesharescam.org
