Just starting to think about our first trip to Kauai in 12 years. My wife will attend a conference 1/2 day each day for 5 days, and would then like to see something different in the way of scenery. We did see quite a bit last time (Waimea Canyon, Hanalei Bay), in a quick visit, staying near Kapaa or Lihue (just recall it was a Holiday Inn, which may ahve change ownership0. Thought of Princeville, but selections there seem expensive. What about Kapaa? A lot bisier area? We do plan on going to the Big Island afterwards.
