Hawaii Kai Heritage Sites to be Recognized

20 points of interest the state has designated as Heritage Sites throughout the Islands will receive new roadside markers, according to the Hawai'i Tourism Authority. As well as the roadside markers, the campaign includes a guide on its website in four languages with photos, descriptions and backgrounds of the various sites.

The campaign is an upgrade of the decades-old roadside "warrior" marker program run by the Hawai'i Visitors and Convention Bureau, the agency HTA contracts to market Hawai'i in North America.

The new roadside markers combine the old red, brown and yellow warrior image with an additional panel that reads "Heritage Site of Hawai'i."

In Hawaii Kai, Ka Iwi State Scenic Shoreline and Makapu'u Trail have been chosen.

If you haven't visited these sites lately to appreciate their beauty and historic significance, now there will be more ways to find them. Aren't we lucky to live Hawaii Kai?
