Guide Books on Kauai, Kauai
"Tasting Kauai Restaurants" is a handy guide to restaurants that make delicious food from scratch using local ingredients. It has an easy icon system that shows what types of meals a restaurant serves, price ranges and dress code; vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options; plus if they have free Wi-Fi, food trucks and when reservations are recommended.
Fondest memory: An excellent reference, "Tasting Kauai Restaurants" sales proceeds benefit those who depend on the Hawaii Food Bank – Kauai Branch. Available on Amazon.com
You may have seen other people recomending The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook from Wizard Publishing, and I must join the gang of satsified owners of this book.
It gives lots of good tips on what to see and do as well as history and details of places.
Their maps are really good and usefull.
The only thing i kind of dislike is their accomodation listings as I think it focuses to much on condos and resorts, but that's really not why you need a guidebook.
Don't leave your room without it.
You can find this magazine in bins located throughout the Lihu`e Airport. They're free so be sure to get one. It provides good maps of the island's cities as well as good ideas to keep you busy during your stay.
Admittedly, some of the things listed seem a little hokey, but overall, it's a good item to have on-hand.
If you want to get one before you arrive, you can order them from their website. This will cost you a few dollars, however.

Favorite thing: Its so helpful to pick up all the guides at the Lihue Airport, you can check all the local current activites. Its mostly advertisements, but you may come across an ad that interests you.
