Hilo ain't much,

I'll argue "a little".


I'd argue a little more too if I had time. I think it's a really pretty place with nice walking and good food,

Also, the North Shore area is supposed to have the best surfing on the planet if you're into that.

Nah.

It has great waves but, trust me, the best waves are definitely elsewhere.

I've made 2 pilgrimages to Tavarua and Cloudbreak has been superb both times.... nothing like this epic June swell. People will be talking about this day for a long time:

PS: Eat at the KTA takeout window in Hilo. Go walk orchid farms and botanical gardens. Check out the lush parks and breakwater, go waterfall hiking, again, lots to do, limited only by doing a little digging.
