Lihue

— 5 nights
Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Visit Kalalau Lookout and Wai`oli Hui`ia Church for their historical value. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Ke'e Beach and Tunnels Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Lihue: Waimea (Puu Hinahina Lookout & Waimea Canyon State Park), Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge (in Kilauea) and Hanalei Valley Lookout (in Hanalei). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Kalapaki Beach, get a new perspective on nature at Kauai Museum, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and trek along Kauai Path.

To find maps, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Lihue online route planner.

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.
