My husband and I are the type of people who love to explore. As soon as we arrived on the Big Island, we found our hotel and dropped off our bags. We immediately headed out the door as soon as we could. One of the first places we visited was "South Point," considered the southernmost tip of the United States.
Upon approaching South Point, there were towering windmills with cattle and horses roaming the area. The road to South Point can be a bit rocky because it's on a narrow, dirt road. However, the view is worth the drive.
Before reaching Jaggar Museum, you may notice steam coming from the ground. It is pretty cool to see.
At Jaggar Museum, one can look into Kilauea Crater, one of Hawaii's active volcanoes. It is a truly amazing place to visit!
At the information center and at Jaggar Museum, you may notice the maps, art, and other items of interest. There is also a gift shop.
After the information center and the museum closed, we decided to continue exploring the park.
There are multi-million research institutes (space observatories) a top Mauna Kea and it's incredible to see.
Although my husband and I only spent three days in the Big Island, it was one of our most memorable trips ever. There's so much to see and do on the Big Island! In fact, three days definitely isn't enough time, but what we did experience will definitely last a lifetime.
