This Tiny Rainforest Oasis Is One Of The Last Of Its Kind In Hawaii
Tucked away near Hawaii Volcanoes National Park at nearly 4,000 feet in elevation, Volcano is home to 2,500 residents, plenty of artistic vibes and art galleries, two general stores, a post office, a farmers market, some mouthwatering restaurants, and phenomenal views. It is also home to one of Hawaii’s last remaining old-growth koa and ohia rainforests.
The Volcano Art Center is located at 19-4074 Old Volcano Rd., Volcano, HI 96785. While guided tours of the rainforest are offered on Mondays only, you can visit the Volcano Art Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
