Kauai's Biggest Little Town

I dont know what it was about Hanapepe but I loved this little town. There was so much charm to it and even though there really wasnt much to do here I really enjoyed spending time here.

I am not sure where the correlation is with Hanapepe and Lilo and Stitch. I think I will have to watch the movie again but its also called Lilo and Stitch town. I dont know if its because the movie used the name or the people that made the movie got the inspiration from this town.
That is something I will have to look into.
When Koa heard this he was looking for Lilo or Stitch all over town.
This is a quiet little place with lots of charm and lots of art gallerys. But this town also has a past.
Turns out that way back in the 1800's Hanapepe used to be the wild side of town with many bars and opium dens. Its a sleepy little town now that is starting to come back to life but there is something special here and its worth coming to check out.

    I really loved Hanapepe, and was told by a great artist that friday nights are open studio nights, so I did make it back for one night. All the way from the Napali coast!

    Did you do art night in Hanapepe? Every Friday night, the galleries stay open late and it's fun to browse.
