Reviewing this town because my town wasn’t included. This town has basically the most amount of life here on the island of Kauai. I really like this town bc of all the things I can do here. I attend my college classes here. I also do my extra curricular activities as well as plan lunch meetings with friends. All in all a nice place and safe to be in.

Actual town is Lihue. It is very central, many shopping and business areas. Very convenient place to Live and visit.
Puhi is a family friendly neighborhood in the middle of all points of interest on Kauai. From Puhi, it's an easy commute to grocery stores, restaurants, and to the heart of the city of Lihue.
