Kauai used to be covered with sugarcane plantations. Today, they're gone, but you can still find sugarcane grown here, as well as papaya, pineapple, bananas and other tropical fruit. Local restaurants often feature locally grown produce, but the best way to enjoy these fruits is fresh from the tree.
The official currency of Hawaii is the US dollar (USD).
