  • A: While the main attraction when visiting the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is to witness the fiery spectacle of volcanic eruptions giving birth to new land masses, there are other things to do here, too. Visitors can take a self-guided drive through the park on one of two marked tour routes - the Crater Rim Drive Tour or on Chain of Craters Road. Or you can hop out of your car and explore the rugged hiking trails that take you to crater's edge. Ranger-led nature walks, hikes and educational classes are held daily, and the movie "Born of Fire, Born of the Sea" is a 25 minute fil that plays on the hour in the Kilauea Visitor Center.
  • A: Volcanoes are awe-inspiring natural wonders that are never the same from day to day. The most famous and active Hawaiian volcano, one that has been erupting regularly for decades, is Kilauea, located within the national park. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory does a great job of posting daily updates on when and where volcanic eruptions are happening, so check the park's website on the date you plan to visit. Recently, eruptions continue at Kilauea's summit and lava is flowing consistently into the sea at Kilauea's Kamokuna ocean entry.
