Lihue

Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Head to Seductions of Kauai Gallery and Kauai Culinary Marketfor some retail therapy. Kalalau Lookout and Kauai's Hindu Monastery will appeal to history buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lihue: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Eleele), Waimea (Waimea Canyon State Park & Russian Fort Elizabeth State Historical Park) and Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Poipu Beach Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn, learn more about the world around you at Kauai Museum, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Kauai Veteran's Cemetery.

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.
