Poipu

— 10 nights
Poipū is a census-designated place in Kauai County on the southern side of the island of Kauai in the U.S. state of Hawaii. Bring the kids along to Spouting Horn and Allerton Garden. Venture out of the city with trips to Wailua (Lydgate State Park & Wailua River State Park), Kekaha Beach Park (in Kekaha) and Waimea (Aunty Liliko'i & Polihale State Park). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Poipu Beach Park, buy something for everyone on your list at Poipu Shopping Village, admire the natural beauty at National Tropical Botanical Garden, and stroll through Baby Beach.

The Garden Isle
The northernmost of Hawaii's major islands, Kauai earned the nickname "Garden Island" because of its abundance of lush greenery and tropical plants, watered frequently with plentiful rainfall. Kauai's landscape continues to suffer from powerful erosion, resulting in natural attractions that include plunging canyons, tall mountain peaks, and the longest sandy coastline of all the Hawaiian islands. Offering a mild tropical climate and pristine wilderness areas largely unspoiled by mass tourism, Kauai is a great vacation destination for visitors eager to escape Hawaii's more crowded tourist resorts. For a genuine Kauai experience, join the locals for one of their famous traditional meat and vegetable feasts, prepared in underground pits lined with hot rocks.
