Minutes from Lihue on the Hawaiian Island of Kauai is a manmade body of water known as Alekoko, or the Menehune Fishpond. The pond was built more than 1,000 years ago and is a true testament to Hawaiian/Polynesian aquaculture. These types of ponds are speckled all over the Hawaiian Islands as a way of trapping fish and being able to grab a fresh meal easily. However, how (and who/what) built this fishpond is the true story behind Alekoko.

If you're seeking outdoor adventures, you must be willing to sacrifice comfortable accommodations and tasty food. Thankfully, not all travel locations require you to give up one thing for another. At Lake Powell, you can actually have it all.
These three small towns, each located near major U.S. lakes, are well worth a visit.
