This north shore Kauai town seems to inspire all who cross the century-old, single-lane, steel-truss Hanalei River Bridge, which is near the small town’s eclectic mix county-style stores, art galleries, eateries and trendy restaurants, boutiques, and adventure-outfitter shops. Surrounded by luxuriant green valleys, rugged cliff faces, and a breathtaking collection of white sand beaches, the area’s natural beauty attracts a steady stream of visitors. Hanalei’s historic highlights range from the Waioli Mission House, where influential Christian missionaries Abner and Lucy Wilcox lived during the 1800s, to the Hanalei Pier, which was built in 1892 and is still a popular spot for fishing, swimming, and just hanging out. The picturesque pier made an appearance in the 1957 film “South Pacific.”
