North Hilo Real Estate

North Hilo

Hilo Hawaii is a rugged paradise that’s more volcanic hotspot then tourist Mecca. Hilo is the weather side of the island, receiving more annual rainfall at 130 inches per year, than Seattle. Hilo’s rugged coastline is spectacular and wild in its beauty and the people who live here are more at one with the island and a spirit of independence. Agriculture and farming in the shadow of three volcanoes is everywhere. If you’re an outdoor person and you like nature and you will see the beauty of Hilo. Most locals feel that the quieter less tourists visited nature of the island is what makes it a great place to live. This is where people get away from it all and they feel more like this is the real Hawaii.

Hilo’s average temperature year round is 73°. It’s cooler than the western side of the island. Sunrises are the spectacular daily event of note rather than sunsets. The days are shortened by the peaks of the volcanic peaks that divide the island into two different ecosystems. If you enjoy what for all intents is perpetual springtime, Hilo is the right place to call home. Hilo is the Big Island’s largest town and serves as the seat of the county government. King Kamehameha himself gave Hilo its name. Hilo is rich with parks and attractions including the largest Japanese garden – 30 acres – this side of Tokyo.

Below is rich with history, folklore and Hawaiian legends. Through the years below has maintained the ambience of an old-fashioned town. Hilo has more of an old Hawaii field than anywhere else in the islands.

While many homes in Hilo are modest and low-priced there is still a wide variety of real estate available.
