Volcano’s Eruption Boosts Tourism
The eruption of Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano has sparked an increase in the number of tourists who want to check out the spectacular lava show. According to the National Park Service, there has been an increase in visitors to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park since last Saturday when the volcano started spewing lava up to 65 feet in the air.
The Park recommends the patio of the Jaggar Museum inside the national park and the Kalapana View Site, outside the park, to view the fiery lava flows. Air-tour companies have added some flights to accommodate demand even though a 1,500-foot temporary flight restriction has been imposed around the volcano.
Visitors can call the lava hotline at (808) 961-8093. Are you interested in checking out the lava show in person? Take a look at Travel Channel’s list of Hawaiian lava-flow tours and other volcano-related activities. Check out our Hawaii lava flow photos, too.
