Forbes Magazine just came out with its 2013 list of America’s Prettiest Towns and Kapa’a, Kauai made the list!

Experts from Frommer’s, National Geographic, Fodor’s and Midwest Living magazine provided their insight to determine the list.  They chose towns that had charm, a variety of activities, and beautiful vistas.  Here’s what they had to say about Kapa’a:

“Kapa’a, Hawaii

Unspoiled prime Hawaiian real estate was central to the plot of the award-winning 2011 George Clooney film, ‘The Descendants,’ but where the much sought-after – and fought-over – land of the movie is meant to remain out of reach, the small-town Hawaii of Kapa’a is entirely within reach. Unlike the high-rise strewn beaches that line so many of Hawaii’s stretches of coast, Kapa’a has a small-town Polynesian paradise quality that feels much more connected to the island’s past. “It’s a very Hawaiian town with traditional ukulele makers and fish taco trucks parked under the palm trees,” says Evans. “It’s a small town with a lot of Hawaiian life, minus the tourist fray.” Shop in the morning, then kayak offshore in the afternoon and don’t worry about fighting for blanket space in the sand – there’s enough for everybody.”
