Princeville

— 4 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. Change things up with these side-trips from Princeville: Waimea (Waimea Canyon State Park & Puu Hinahina Lookout) and Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha). There's still lots to do: trek along Kalalau Trail, buy something for everyone on your list at Princeville Center, tee off at Princeville Golf Club - Prince Course, and identify plant and animal life at Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge.

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.
