My recent trip to Kauai felt more like a dream than reality. It was filled with magical places and moments. I’m really grateful for the things I experienced while visiting: waterfall hiking, swimming in the warm turquoise waters, and even feeding a friendly horse. Kauai is known as the “Garden Island” and for good reason. It’s luscious terrain and pristine beaches make it a truly perfect tropical getaway. As someone who’s travelled to multiple tropical getaway destinations, Kauai has become my new favorite. We went to visit friends that live on the island, so we got a few inside tips on places to check out.
