About Hilo and the Big Island of Hawai'i

Hilo is the seat of Hawaii County on the eastern coast of the island of Hawaii, between Keaau and Papaikou. The city lies along Highway 11 near Hilo Bay and Lelewi Point.

The area was settled by missionaries around 1822 and incorporated as a city in 1911. Hilo sustained heavy damage from tsunamis in 1946 and 1960.

Today Hilo is one of the state's largest cities. It has a busy seaport and is a commercial and tourist hub of the island.

Sugarcane, fruits, macadamia nuts and orchids, are cultivated in the surrounding area.

Hilo and the Big Island of Hawai'i have a wealth of diversions for visitors - beaches and watersports, an active volcano, scenic drives, state parks, museums, botanical gardens, nurseries. The University of Hawaii has a campus in the city.

Hawai'i Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities

We built the Hawai'i Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities so people can get reliable information and support. The Hawai'i Yellow Pages has many helpful resources - evaluators, educational consultants, academic tutors, support groups, grassroots organizations, advocates, attorneys and others who help parents get services for their children.

If you provide a service, sign up to be listed on the Yellow Pages for Kids with Disabilities - this is a free service from Wrightslaw.
