In actual fact, there is very little to do or see in this small town. It is an out of the way place where one can spend wonderful leisure time away from the crowds.
If you want to just enjoy the countryside, find a nice bed and breakfast, there are several available, get to know the people, use this as a home base and see the rest of the attractions of Nature. It is a wonderful way to enjoy yourself on the Big Island at a more nominal cost than the average hotel, in many ways, you will find out more from your hosts about the Island than from a tour group guide.
People in Hawaii who manage bnb's are quick to assist you and will give you insights that simply are not available from large tour operations.
Preparatory to preparing this page, I've been in touch with a few of them. They anxiously await your arrival. I am trying to develop a small VT discount. School is still out on that subject.
The internet is loaded with vast amounts of material having to do with this illustrious voyager. There are replications of his Logs, and most of them are wrong as the subject of Hawai'i is reviewed.
Captain Cook, for all that he did, was not the Discoverer of Hawai'i. Far from it, as the location of these Islands was already well known to the Mariners of the time. His logs prove that. Let us correct the record and give proper credit to the actual group who discovered these Islands. They kept no logs known to present day historians, though there may be as yet undiscovered petroglyphs which tell the true story. As yet, I have no knowledge of their discovery.
Who these people were and exactly where they came from may never be known to us, but one thing is certain, they were not White men on a boat, who came to plant their countries flag and declare themselves the discoverers, though history tells us that many were of a mind to so do. It is an unparalleled arrogance which time and truth will eventually moderate.
