Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kalapaki Beach and Shipwreck Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Tunnels Beach and Poipu Beach Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lihue: Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea), Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha) and Hanalei (Hanalei Beach & Hanalei Valley Lookout). Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge, buy something for everyone on your list at Poipu Shopping Village, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and take in the dramatic natural features at Spouting Horn.

Los Angeles to Lihue is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. Traveling from Los Angeles in July, you can expect nighttime temperatures to be somewhat warmer in Lihue, with lows of 74°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
