Welcome to Hawaii Volcanoes Natl Park, HI

Few visitors realize that in addition to "the volcano"(Kilauea)—that mountain oozing new layers of lava onto its flanks—there's also Volcano, the village. Conveniently located next to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Volcano village is a charming little hamlet in the woods that offers a dozen or so excellent inns and bed-and-breakfasts, a decent (although strangely expensive) Thai restaurant, some killer (although strangely expensive) pizza, and a handful of things to see and do that don't include the village's namesake. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC.
