Not quite It’s actually a Hawaiian breakfast Or lunch with many different variations The traditional is a sunnyside up egg On top of a burger Smothered in gravy And white rice It sounds delicious because it is Hit up Cafe 100 in Hilo Because they invented it back in 1946 We enjoyed the trip a lot But i’m going to warn you right now. If you order the super loco moco like I did You are not going to be able to eat for the rest of the day And you may have the urge to take a really long nap. Moving on to number 6 We spent most of our time on the Big Island living in Hilo, which is a very underrated place Now something you could for a day is hop around to many of the different waterfalls In the area As the Big Island has some of the best ones in the entire world. And you could start with Rainbow Falls or Boiling Pots But if you can figure out how to get there, Narnia Falls Is an excellent spot to just hang out for the afternoon And avoid some of the crowds You may have to find a local to show you the way like we did though It’s a long hike But quite worth it in the end Trust me Number 5 Uncle Roberts Night Market in Kalapana This place is really unique, and we only visited once But if I had more time I would have been a regular customer Held every Wednesday not only can you sample everything from Hawaiian Barbecue to Mexican to Kimchi Korean But it has a certain hippie vibe to it that you have to experience for yourself And by the way those socks cost only 5 dollars The live music is really authentic Hawaiian The performers are worth the trip by themselves And did I mention the fire twirlers Number 4 Kayaking with dolphins in Kona Now you have to go to Kealakekua Bay to get this done And I hope you don’t mispronounce it like I did Start with Kealakekua Bay. I think I just butchered that You could pay for an expensive tour to do this Or you could do what we did and find a local company to rent a kayak 30 dollars Per person For the entire day Not only is the water absolutely gorgeous torquise But if you’re lucky you’ll find a few pods of Dolphins swimming around And the best part is that while the expensive boat tours are nearby You’re getting the same view only more up close and personal This has to be one of your top choices when you get to the Kona side of the big Island Let’s move onto number three Horseback riding the rim of the Waipio Valley We found this amazing horseback riding company That took us on a five hour ride that included not only some out of this world scenery Really the Waipio Valley is one of the most beautiful parts of the Island of Hawaii And the perfect place to forget about the rest of the world. We also stopped by a secluded waterfall for lunch And even found a horseback riding dog named Patches That day was one of the highlights of our month in Hawaii And something you really need to experience Number 2 take a shelter dog out for a field trip I think that every state in the U.S has to implement this program right now You can do it in either Hilo, Kona, or Waimea Essentially you’re taking the dog out for a couple of hours to do whatever you want And there’s no charge The shelter provides you with all of the equipment you need We took Miracle out in this video and she was really sweet And kept us on our toes We returned a second time to take out a different dog And found out that Miracle was adopted shortly after the video was made. Don’t ever think you can’t make a difference when you’re out traveling This simple act is going to be getting these dogs Out into the community And they wear adopt me insignia So people are going to see them and you can definitley change a life My number one activity on the Big Island of Hawaii Go see the lava on Mount Kileau If there was just one thing I recommend you do on the Big Island It would be this And there’s a couple of ways you can do it You have expensive options Like taking a helicopter Or a boat You could do what we did Which involves renting a bike about 4 miles from the viewing area Or you could even hike it The biking was pretty economical at just $20 per person And you felt like you were riding through Mars On the way to one of the Big Island’s must do activities This is the worlds most active volcano And you get to watch lava flow into the ocean Creating new earth Just a quarter mile away If that’s not something you’ll never forget I don’t know whatw is As an added bonus if you have extra time You should definitley go inside volcano national park To check out the old lava fields Totally totally worth it All of the footage above came from my Big Island of Hawaii Playlist Which i’m going to be linking to down in the description So definitley go check that out If you want evne more ideas About things to do When you visit And there’s a book i’m going to be recommending called Hawaii, the Big Island Revealed I read it and got a lot of useful information from it It’s also going to be linked down in the description That does it for my coverage of the Big Island of Hawaii How sad, I know But for all those Americans watching out there I just want to tell you this You can go a world away Without even leaving the U.S You don’t need a passport Their were times I felt like I was in a foreign country So you guys especially need to be taking advantage of Hawaii.
