Kapa’a Kauai Named One of America’s Prettiest Towns by Forbes

Forbes recently posted an article about America’s Prettiest Towns – with a list of 15 towns throughout the country that exemplified charm and beauty, and offered plenty of activities for visitors.


This is Kealia Beach, located at the north end of Kapa’a

Kapa’a, on the east side of the island of Kauai, had the honor of being the only Hawaiian town chosen for this list. The article mentioned Kapa’a’s small town charm, along with beauty and lots of beach space. View the Forbes review of Kapa’a as one of America’s Prettiest Towns.

The Forbes article pointed out that Kapa’a has several great food trucks offering convenient dining options – one of these is currently my favorite place to get a quick lunch.
