HI - the Big Island ... suggestions?

We are going to Hawaii in a couple weeks! We will be on the "big island," staying on the Kona Coast, but I'd love any recommendations for the whole island. I'm sure we will be seeing everything we can all over the island. Thanks all!

I figured Wasabi would know the answer! But I don't know which island she lives on.

Here I am. Corazon, you will be going to one of my fav islands. There is so much to see and do. Here are some must sees-Visit a coffee plantation and get our Kona coffee ,go to Waimea Town and see where our paniolos (cowboys) live and work, Pu'ohonua O Hanaunau is a restored Hawaiian village. The big island is where they grow those beautiful protea flowers and where we get most of our mac nuts for our delish candy. Go to Mauna Kea the world's tallest mountain. October 7th, Hilo Town will have a Tahiti Fete. Lots of food, crafts etc,. And I saved the best for last, Hawaii Volcano Park. Breathtaking!

I live on the island of Oahu, about a 45 minute flight to The Big Island. Be sure to rent a car. The Big Island is "big". As far as places to eat goes, I cannot help you there because when we visit, we stay with friends and cook out alot. I hope you have a terrific trip and bring back some pictures.
Aloha, Wasabi

great chili

In Kamuela, where Parker Ranch is, there is a restaurant by the highway. They have the best chili there. Parker Ranch is a real working ranch with cattle. We always wonder wheather they get their meat from the ranch directly.

stone cookies...

On the way up to the Volcanos National Park the highway passes a small district called Mountain View. It is near another district called Puna. In Mountain View, there is a bakery that is known for their "Stone Cookies" They are unique because they are hard as rock. If you didn't know that they were supposed to be hard, you would think that the batch of cookies did not come out right. The islanders buy these cookies to bring back from the Big Island when they travel.
