Kauai Rocks in Tourism While Oahu & Maui Slip

No Tourism Growth in Hawaii in 2007 Is Not The Full Story...Kauai Rocks!

The University of Hawaii Economic Research Organization (UHERO) reports that Hawaii tourism (it's financial mainstay) got off to a poor start in 2007 and the forecast is for limited gains for the rest of the year.  They reported that visitor days on Oahu and Maui fell 4.3 percent and 2.2 percent respectively in the first quarter. This is not good news for the economies of those counties.  There are bright spots though!  The Big Island saw a 3.4 percent growth in visitor arrivals and Kauai was stronger yet with arrivals up a whopping 10.8 percent and visitor days up 4.4 percent.  The ongoing building boom on Kauai's south shore will assure plenty of choices for those additional tourists for years to come.  Many of these tourists will eventually elect to buy their own place in paradise if they have not already done so. Kauai has a bright future as long as growth doesn't overwhelm it's beauty.

Glad to see that Kauai has a bright future. You lucky dog.... living in there.

Hurry over Christina, the water's warm and the lifestyle is relaxed.  Dress is much more casual too--I would look weird if I wore that suit hanging in my closet.

You last line says it all - "Kauai has a bright future as long as growth doesn't overwhelm it's beauty."  Growth is nice, but it would be a shame to destroy the majesty of your island with houses all over it.
