Things to Do

The Island of Hawai'i, frequently called The Big Island to avoid confusion, is the largest of the Hawaiian islands, and there is a ton of stuff to do, from lounging at the pool or a beach, to hiking, to small-town shopping, to visiting an erupting volcano. If you're thinking about coming several days before the ceremony or staying several days after, but aren't sure what there is to do, here's a few of our favorites, ranked by ease, convenience and cost.

Easy, Convenient & Inexpensive
All of these are either at the Sheraton or on the free Keauhou Resort Trolly route and cost relatively little to enjoy.

Easy & Inexpensive
