Shopping

Tour the old buildings

Take a tour to the City of Refuge

Drive around the southern end of the island to the black sand beach

Take a tour north to the Parker Ranch

Sit in the sun and people-watch, drink Kona coffee and eat shave ices all afternoon!!!!

I can't speak for the other items, but I highly recommend driving to the Black Sand beach, Punalu'u. It is an experience that shouldn't be missed. We also drove down to South Point (although the road is supposedly off limits to rental cars), and, if we had been in better shape, might have tried to climb down to the green sand beach (hey, I know my limitations). Also, the Mauna Loa lava fields are on the way

Plan on 2-3 hours. It is about 70 miles each way, but the highway is pretty good

Do you mean 2-3 hours each way? That doesn't leave much time.
