Comfortable, laid back Hilo is the gateway to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and an authentic taste of Hawaii's Big Island. The Hilo Hawaiian Hotel is located right on Hilo Bay and only two miles from Hilo Airport. Old banyan trees line the drive to the hotel, most of which were planted in the 1930's by celebrities such as Babe Ruth, Amelia Earhart and Cecil B. DeMille. Mauna Kea looms in the background and the arched bridge that leads to Coconut Island is only steps from the doors of the property. The hotel is flanked by a beautiful beach, the Liliuokalani Gardens and the Naniloa Country Club.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Kilauea Military Camp (KMC) is a historic mountain-top setting inside the park, yards from the summit caldera of Kilauea; its history is as old as Hawaii Volcanoes National Park itself, having been established in the same year-1916. It began as an idea of a training ground for the National Guard and an Army "vacation and health recruiting station" and over the years, it has housed a Navy camp, hosted numerous dignitaries including General Dwight D. Eisenhower, and briefly served as an internment camp and later as a prisoner-of-war camp during World War II. While KMC still maintains its historical charm, renovations to the camp in the last decade have enhanced its facilities and services making it one of the military’s favorite vacation locations. Only America’s military members, their families, and other categories of special-approved patrons are permitted to enjoy its rustic charms and well-situated facilities.
2 nights
The Courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha's Kona Beach Hotel is a beachfront hotel located on the Big Island of Hawaii's Kona Coast and is 8 miles from Kona International Airport and 105 miles from the city of Hilo. This former king's residence in the heart of the historic fishing village of Kailua-Kona overlooks Kamakahonu Bay and is within easy walking distance to Hulihee Palace, shops, and restaurants in town. Historic artifacts and images are located throughout the hotel.
3 nights
Kahului, Maui
This basic, two to three-star kamaaina (local) property is situated on the harbor in the heart of Kahului, Maui and is conveniently located near the airport and program sites. Despite its name, there is not a swimming beach. However, there are several lovely beaches 30 minutes away (shuttles available or cars can be rented from airport). There is a large shopping mall within easy walking distance across the street.
3 nights
Hotel Molokai, the only hotel on the island of Molokai, is a rural, relaxed oasis in a busy world. With its charming A-frame architecture, Polynesian-style decor, ocean front detached cottages, and location a few miles from Kaunakakai town, it is a genuine hideaway and treasure from all things mainstream. There is breathtaking natural beauty, deserted beaches, no high-rise buildings, and an ‘old’ Hawaii feel in Molokai.
2 nights
The Waikiki Resort Hotel is very well located in the heart of Waikiki, half a block away from the Kuhio Beach section of world famous Waikiki Beach and in the shadow of iconic Diamond Head. Being near Kuhio Beach is a real plus, as it is the most interesting part of Waikiki Beach because it is wide, sandy, nicely landscaped, and it is home to the beachboy stands which send out surfers and outrigger canoes. The hotel is also within walking distance of other popular attractions such as Kapiolani Park (great for morning or evening walks), the Honolulu Zoo, the Waikiki Aquarium, the International Marketplace, and a multitude of restaurants and other attractions.
