Far and away from the rest of the pack of favorite Hawaii small town votes in our Facebook poll was Hanalei. The north shore Kauai town seems to inspire all who cross the single lane Hanalei River Bridge and find its charms, be it first-timers, return visitors or residents. Our Facebook ohana confessed its love of Hanalei’s unusual shopping mix—from its country stores and art galleries to its boutique clothiers, adventure outfitters and retailers of mysticism. They sang the praises of Hanalei’s surprisingly inspired dining choices—everything from burgers, wood-fired pizzas and deli sandwiches to sushi and upscale yet casual tapas. But most of all, our Facebook ohana loved the feeling of simply being in Hanalei—surrounded on all sides by luxuriant valleys, rugged cliff faces that aspire to touch the heavens, and the most breathtaking collection of white sand beaches on Kauai.
