Mine golfe
“I am in the green. Wind 5mph to the east. Slight 10-degree angle downhill. Now, maybe if I just ricochet this off the cave wall hard enough… Located in Kilauea on the North Shore is Kauai Miniature Golf and Botanical Garden. It is the only mini golf course on the island. For those that have yet to test their putting game in this 18-hole course, there will undoubtedly be preconceived notions of mini golf being somewhat of a wacky carnival experience. Instead, you find yourself surrounded by greenery. As you make your way through the 18 holes you receive an introductory course on the diverse history of the islands. Visitors will learn about the Polynesian discovery of the islands, indigenous gardens containing endangered species, Zen gardens showcasing the influence of the Japanese and Chinese during the plantation period, and some insight on the plantation town that was alive and thriving in Kilauea in the late 1800’s. Do not let the garden scenery discount the fun of this course. You begin the first hole with a simple, short, straight line putt. Easy enough, right? Well, as you progress so does the difficulty. Add ponds, curves, elevations, and obstructions that will test one’s shot creativity. Take hole 16, for example. The path bends left with a dip, but there is also a small log tunnel that creates a straight shot to the hole. From personal experience, if you’re going to “Shooter McGavin” your way through that shortcut, don’t be bashful with it. You don’t want your ball stuck in the tunnel, especially now that your friend knows exactly what not do and reminds you of the losing bet you made at the start of the game. The entire course is fit for every one of all ages and skill levels. Bring a friend, a date, even your family. It’s first come, first served, so no time to waste. Be prepared to fish your ball out the water. Trust me. ”

Museum
“Kilauea Point NWR was established in 1985 to preserve and enhance seabird nesting colonies and was expanded in 1988 to include Crater Hill and Mklea Point. The refuge is home to the historic Kilauea Point Lighthouse. The lighthouse was built in 1913 and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is situated on Kauai’s northernmost point and was used as a navigational aid for commercial shipping between Asia and Hawaii for 62 years. The refuge is home to some of the largest populations of nesting seabirds in the main Hawaiian Islands. Every year, thousands of seabirds use the refuge for nesting, foraging and resting. You can view Laysan albatross, red-footed boobies, brown boobies, red-tailed and white-tailed tropicbirds, Pacific golden plovers, great frigate birds and wedge-tailed shearwaters. The refuge is also home to nene, an endangered species of goose endemic to the Hawaiian islands. Nene were reintroduced to the refuge in the 1990s and are making a comeback. Nene is the official bird of the state of Hawaii. Kilauea Point is a popular place to watch whales in the winter! Besides the beautiful views, visitors may have an opportunity to see spinner dolphins, Hawaiian monk seals, green sea turtles (honu) and humpback whales (kohala). Visitors can learn about various Native coastal plants that have been restored on the refuge such as naupaka, ilima, hala, aheahea, and akoko. The endangered plant restoration program is giving species such as the rare alula a chance to survive in Kilauea Point’s environment. Kilauea Point is the remnant of the former Kilauea volcanic vent that last erupted about 15,000 years ago. Today, only a small U-shaped portion remains, including a spectacular 568-foot ocean bluff. The Refuge is located 2 miles north of Kilauea town. Approximately half a million people visit the refuge each year to enjoy one of the greatest places on earth to observe seabirds and the endangered nene. Observation scopes and binoculars are available to see them up close and personal. Interpretation and education programs are available with volunteers and staff on site to assist you in identifying wildlife, as well as an information center and bookstore. ”

Museum
“"History" isn't a word that necessarily exudes excitement, more-so drawn-out speeches and grainy, black-and-white photos. Can it be boring? Well, sure, but that's just me and my hours of lecture classes talking. Besides, not many people care to put effort into learning about what has already happened hundreds of years ago; people want to focus on the "now" and what's to come ahead. Except, eventually you realize everything, both present and future, is the result of the precedence. Take a look at Kauai; you see the towns, the people, and the culture mix, they’re all a result of historic events. Imagine if Hawaii's monarchy weren't overthrown in 1893, can you picture the islands not being a part of the U.S and still being ruled by kings and queens? Crazy, right? There's one place on Kauai to learn about this and so much more. The Kauai Museum is located on Rice Street, just a few minutes away from the Lihue Airport. The dated, but timeless, architecture make it instantly recognizable for passersby. The museum is open everyday, except Sunday, from 10 am to 5 pm. Inside you will discover various artifacts, exhibits, and murals, ranging from the ancient Hawaiian times, early sugar plantation life, and World War II. There is a gift shop for special keepsakes to take home. History can be a fun experience by being just that, an experience. Visualize traveling to Machu Picchu, the Pyramids of Giza, or Stonehenge, they create wonder and interest because it's all right there in front of you. That's what museums look to accomplish, to give the perception of physically stepping back in time.”

“Not one to miss! Go directly before sunset to enjoy the beautiful scenery and…a large flock of parrots that fly to the palm trees surrounding the restaurant. Early risers can also watch the parrots leave at dawn. You do not have to eat at the restaurant. Just need to be in the vicinity. It is a bit pricey but the food, view, parrots and service make it worthwhile. ”
