Retrace your steps back to main Highway 50 (Kaumuali'i Highway), drive east and look for a right turn on to busy Rice Street to reach Lihue, the county seat.  Lihu'e Airport (LIH) is located here, and American Airlines, America West - US Airways, Hawaiian Airlines, and Aloha Airlines all fly to the Garden Isle of Kauai. Most vacationers first land on Kauai at Lihue Airport and head directly for resort destinations on other parts of the island.  The simple town of Lihue however, populated by descendants of sugar workers, has much history to offer to those who care to look deeper.
