Kauai Village in Kapaa Town

Here is another large center that is centrally located on east Kauai, midway 
between the southern resort area of Poipu and the northern resort area of 
Princeville. The eastern side of Kauai has the largest population center of 
Kauai. This shopping center was opened in 1990 and it fronts onto Kuhio 
Highway.  Kauai Village boasts over 110,000 square feet of leasable area 
and has as its two primary anchor stores, Safeway and Long's Drugs. This 
eight acre complex features stores and restaurants that appeal to both local 
residents as well as to visitors of Kauai. There is an open air court with a ten 
foot waterfall and a series of landscaped ponds and streams laced with small 
walking bridges and walkways.  There are over 30 shops and restaurants 
within this shopping area.  There is a good mixture of boutiques, gift shops, 
art galleries and restaurants of the fast-food variety to fine dining.

The identifying feature of the shopping village is its turn-of-the-century 
(1900, not 2000) plantation architectural design with a three story clock tower 
and two huge Whaling Wall murals, painted  by the artist Wyland.
