Lihue

— 3 nights
Lihue or LÄ«hue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Explore Lihue's surroundings by going to Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha), Waimea (Puu Hinahina Lookout & Waimea Canyon State Park) and Hanalei (Hanalei Valley Lookout & Wai`oli Hui`ia Church). There's much more to do: see the world from above with a helicopter tour, take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn, enjoy the sand and surf at Poipu Beach Park, and whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

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.
