There is loads of information about Lihue available online (most of which is Kauai specific), and if planning a trip, it should be investigated before ever leaving home. 

            A great place to begin doing research is on Discover Kauai , the official tourism website of the county of Kauai.  This site has lots of useful information for the first time visitor to the Hawaii Islands.  A FAQs link will answer questions concerning rental cars, public transportation, beach locations (with lifeguards), weather, and much more.  There are plenty of activities to keep the visitor busy, and the activities tab provides a good starter guide.  The Parks and Beaches tab provides locations of the major recreation areas on the island.  There is even a link for the many festivals and events held throughout the year on the island.

            For real-time weather information in Lihue, visit Weather Now .  Or, check out Averages for monthly temperature and precipitation averages in Lihue.

            There are no foreign embassies on any of the Hawaii islands.  Make sure to visit your national embassy’s website for information about travel to Kauai before leaving home.  Embassy World is a great site for finding national embassies everywhere.

            For government related issues, visit the Kauai Government Homepage.
