A Little Bit About Kauai, Hawaii
The Grand Hyatt Kauai will be the host location during your stay in Kauai for the 97th Annual Meeting of the American Radium Society. Kauai is the fourth largest island and is sometimes called the “Garden Isle,” and it is the island’s laid-back atmosphere and rich culture found in its small towns and along its one-lane bridges that make it truly timeless. The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs, aged by time and the elements. Beyond Kauai’s dramatic beauty, the island is home to a variety of outdoor activities. Kayak the Wailua River. Snorkel on Poipu Beach. Hike the trails of Kokee State Park or visit the Kilkauea Lighthouse and Wildlife Refuge. For those interested in some historic sites, they can visit Fort Elizabeth and the coconut and sugar plantations which were established during the early trading era in the 1700s.
