Enjoy its lovely landscaping, arching bridges that pass above fishponds, walking paths, pagodas, Japanese stone lanterns and a teahouse.

Situated at the northernmost end of the Hawaiian archipelago, Kauai is Hawaii's oldest island.

Venture out to the Waimea Canyon for some hiking: When you see the canyon's rocky, red-hued walls, you'll understand why it's called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Or go kayaking along the Na Pali Coast — you might recognize the rocky cliffs and turquoise waters from the original "Jurassic Park," which was filmed here.

Cool off with a sweet shave ice topped with coconut cream.
