The Big Island, as the name would suggest, is the largest island in Hawaii. It is also one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the United States. Among the many attractions to be found on the island is Mauna Loa, the massive volcano that rises to an elevation of 13,680 feet.
Visitors to the Big Island can swim in the tropical waters of the South Pacific in the morning and frolic in the snow at the top of Mauna Loa in the afternoon! Hilo is the main city on the Big Island.
