Now the word will be out about this hidden gem. Never been to Hawaii. Tons of friends say they love visiting.
I haven’t been to Hawaii since I was a kid, but your photos make me want to jump on the next plane and take a vacation there. You have such great information, and it was so much fun to read! Thank you!
I would love to return to Hawaii. I was there 16 years ago on my honeymoon. I visited Maui and Kauii. I would love to see more of the islands…truly the most beautiful place on earth in my opinion.
I find it really interesting that this post is about Kapaa in Kauai but it includes photos from Oahu – which is a completely different island?
This sounds like a beautiful place to visit. When we travel, we like to find places that are less popular and not as touristy, and this sounds like something we would like. I haven’t ever been to Hawaii but have wanted to go for a while now.
