The Isle of Kauai – Old Koloa Town & Waimea Canyon

January 13, 2012

One of my favorite places to eat on the island ended up being in a town called Old Koloa. This was the site of Kauai’s first sugar plantation back in 1830 and it stills holds part of it’s historical charm. Right when you drive into town, on the left side of the road, is a food truck called Chalupas. Miguel serves up some amazing authentic Mexican dishes. My personal favorite is the house specialty, the chalupas! I asked for a veggie verison, but it can come with your choice of meat, beans, cabbage, tomato, avacado, & fresh salsa. So yummy!  Here are a few photos of our stroll around the small town.  

About 30 miles west of Old Koloa is the largest canyon in the Pacific, Waimea Canyon. 
She is a beaut to see… deep, wide, with rock formation in rich red. Of course there were more rainbows here as well. The parents dropped us off and we set out for a couple hour hike. 

Just one more post of our vacation coming up! I hope you all have been enjoying these glimpses of our vacation…giving you a little “warmth” to your winter day. It finally started snowing here in Michigan. This time I’m ready for it. 🙂

    Looks like it was a really fun vacation! And it looks warrrrrm ahh. I’m totally ready for it to snow in Michigan, except being in the Detroit area we keep missing the huge storms! We’ve gotten a dusting… so not fun. I want the big snow of west Michigan! 🙂
