1. Stargaze on top of the world’s tallest mountain
Island: The Big Island
Though many people believe that Mount Everest is the world’s tallest mountain, that title actually belongs to Mauna Kea in Hawaii (when measuring from the seafloor to the peak). Located an hour and half away from the Hilton Waikoloa Village, Mauna Kea is one of the best stargazing spots in the world. With the high altitude and minimal light pollution, you can often see a clear view of the Milky Way.
