Lihue

— 6 nights
Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Head to Princeville Center and Tahiti Nuifor plenty of shopping. Get some cultural insight at Kalalau Lookout and Grove Farm Sugar Plantation Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lihue: Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei) and Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Poipu Beach Park, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, learn about winemaking at Nani Moon Mead LLC, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

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.
