Get out of town with these interesting Koloa side-trips: Kapaa (Kauai Path & Sleeping Giant Trail). There's much more to do: get a dose of the wild on Kauai Safaris, enjoy the sand and surf at Kalapaki Beach, steep yourself in history at Menehune Fishpond, and learn more about the world around you at Kauai Museum.

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.
