Princeville

— 3 nights
Princeville is a 9,000acre, upscale, unincorporated, master-planned community of vacation homes and condos on the north shore of the island of Kauai in Kauai County, Hawaii. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Ke'e Beach and Anini Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge and Hanalei Valley Lookout. Step out of Princeville to go to Kekaha and see Koke`e State Park, which is approximately 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Wai`oli Hui`ia Church, take in the dramatic natural features at Queen's Bath, kick back and relax at Hanalei Bay, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Tunnels 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.
