New York Times: 36 Hours in Kauai
“All the raves you’ve heard are true. Kauai is a lush island with just the right mix of amenities and untamed beauty.”
New York Times contributor Dave Seminara recently visited Kauai as part of the online travel series “36 Hours in…” which tells you what to do and when to do it when you have just under two days to get to know a city, or island.
Seminara dedicated nearly an entire day to exploring the northern part of the island. He walked in the footsteps of George Clooney, who starred in the 2011 Kauai-filmed movie, “The Descendants,” lounged on the beaches from the film “South Pacific” and visited the Hanalei Valley lookout, a perfect vantage point for taking in the sweeping, panoramic views of the surrounding valley and lush hillside. Adjacent to the lookout is Princeville Makai Golf Club, where the day was finished soaking up nature’s splendor on a sunset golf tour.
