This is not our first trip to Hawaii by any means - we usually hang out in Maui!!! However, my hubby wants to try a new island this go 'round, so Kauai it is!
With that said, which side of the island is it best to stay on for foot traffic to local eateries. I know in Maui, we were kinda stuck eating at the resorts, and that right there can do damage to your budget - oh, we are not "vacation cookers" (no disrespect to those that are)... We have three kids, and would prefer to live a life of leisure while on vacation... I digress...
Anywho, we are looking at the Regis, Grand Hyatt, or Kea Koa (sp)... Which property has the most accessibility to off resort eateries. We know we have to rent a car, so that is a no brainer... But if we can explore - walk about a mile or so to dinner, that would be nice... I really cannot wait!! June/July 2013 is our ETA.
