Lihue

Lihue or LÄ«hue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Get out of town with these interesting Lihue side-trips: Hanalei (Hanalei Beach & Hanalei Valley Lookout), Swinging Bridge (in Hanapepe) and Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea). There's much more to do: see the world from above with a helicopter tour, admire the sheer force of Wailua Falls, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and explore the striking landscape at Spouting Horn.

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Lihue trip planning app .

Minneapolis to Lihue is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Minneapolis to Lihue is minus 4 hours. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Minneapolis in October, with highs in Lihue at 84°F and lows at 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
