The town of Hilo wraps around Hilo Bay and is characterized by early 1900s architecture reflecting its historic role as the county seat and the main commercial center for the sugar industry on Hawaii's Big Island. In early times, the bayfront, known as Piopio or Waiolama, was the gathering point for hundreds of war canoes under the command of King Kamehameha the Great during the unification of the islands. Hilo's Visitor Information Center is in the bayfront area at Mooheau Bus Station (RR) and is staffed by trained volunteers who provide free maps and information. The town's center features a number of restored buildings, theaters, restaurants, a bustling Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays, the Lyman House Museum (RR) just up the street near two historic church sites, the Haili Congregational Church (RR) and St. Joseph's Catholic Church (RR). Other attractions include Rainbow Falls, The Wailoa Art and Visitor Center (RR), the King Kamehameha Statue, Liliuokalani Park (RR), Coconut Island (RR), the Pacific Tsunami Museum (RR), and the East Hawaii Culture Center (RR) directly across the street from historic Kalakaua Park.
