Hawaii Tourism Plunges in September

hibiscus image The state Department of Business, Econoic Development and Tourism (DBEDT) has released September tourism figures and guess what, they dropped off a cliff!  Hawaii as a whole was down 19.5% and Kauai was down 29%!  Recent strength has been our Canadian visitors which declined by 6% which is small compared to the overall decline.  Of course the flip side of this is that it's a great time to visit Hawaii because the crowds are gone!

I've seen a shift in my real estate business here on Kauai from mainland & foreign investors to local buyers looking for a home to live in.  Fortunately for those people, prices are more reasonable these days and there is much more to choose from.
