    Maui Tropical Plantation was recommended to us as a nice lunch stop on our drive back toward Lahaina from the north side of the island. We are so glad we stopped! The lunch at Cafe Ole was fantastic. The drinks were delicious and the views of the valley and mountains were beautiful. They have a nice gift shop and market and other buildings with crafts, a zip line and plantation tour. We didn't have time to fully explore but will be sure to stop again on our next trip to Maui.

    This is a very beautiful valley. Mountains are dramatic and majestic. The paved path was a simple hike/walk for our family including adults, teens and young children. It did feel a little underwhelming (paved hiking area is only about 200 yards) for the price of admission and parking. Apparently you can circumvent the fee by parking outside the gate but it wasn’t that pricey and ultimately you’re supporting a state park which is worth it. For the more adventurous there are non-paved trails that extend much farther and are worth the effort.

    Did a walkabout of this historic neighborhood and came across this old theater. It is now used as a performing arts center and is quite nice. It has a great history that includes Bob Hope doing USO shows there in WW2.

    My wife and I took a pleasant walk through this small park. It contained a fair amount of Hawaiian history and it was interesting to read about the early Chinese and Japanese settlers. Stop by if you have a few minutes.

    It was a fun way to spend a rainy day in Maui. It’s not a large center but it was interesting.
    We enjoyed the new whale exhibit.

    MAPA is more than just an outstanding Academy for drama and dance. It partners with schools to enrich reading through drama. It has produced Broadway-worthy musicals such as Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Evita, Jekyll and Hyde, and Hunchback of Notre Dame. I can’t wait to see Into the Woods and the children’s production of Lion King (Jr.) this summer of 2018.

    We purchased the Shabbat meal box... food, wine+kiddish cup, candles for erev Shabbat and Havdalah. The food was more than enough for three adults, for Erev Shabbat dinner, breakfast+lunch+dinner on Saturday... and we still have food leftover.
    Salmon, chicken, beef... all delicious. Numerous tasty sides (such as Hummus, Egg Salad, Z'chug, Olive Dip, and several more!)
    The quality of the food and obvious talent and love that went into this box was obvious and appreciation.
    When we visited, it was rainy afternoon; a tour of the farm was not really possible as it was muddy and Shabbat was quickly approaching.
    Rabbi Zirkind was friendly as could be. We would love to return someday and learn more about what is happening here.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    This was a beautiful garden on the road into Iao Valley. Unfortunately it closed about two years ago.

    Not being a local, but having been to my fair share of street festivals, when our friends who live in Maui asked us to attend First Friday, we were game. I’m glad we took them up on the offer as we had a good time. I know where I’m from we tend to have bigger street fairs, but this is a small town on an island so expect a much smaller venue. There were plenty of food vendors to pick from and while we are both meat eaters, one of our friends is not and there were plenty of vegan options. My fiancé visited “The Corn Project” booth where there were dressing ears of corn in all sorts of “toppings,” he got the Mexican option and it was amazing. There are two sections here for bands to setup. One section I was told is geared towards more local music, when I say local I mean Hawaiian. This ended up being our favorite area as there were multiple hula groups who were performing around the stage. The stage towards the back of the festival had a more mainstream pop cover band, which was also very good. In the area of the second band one will find multiple food trucks, everything from Thai, Mexican to bbq, there were plenty of food options to pick from. There are also a lot of local artisans selling their items. I bought a pineapple lime hot sauce from Hana Farms. Since I’ve been home I’ve put this sauce on tons of stuff. It goes really well on a burger, with a pineapple on a sweet Hawaiian bun. Definitely can’t wait till we’re back on the island next year to visit this little street fair.

    WE were on our way to the hotel after visiting Iao Park. We decide to stap and see what this was like. It turns out that the church was named after Queen Ka'ahumanu when it was built in 1876. It is a large church and there is a lot of history in it so you can learn that the queen was an early Christian.
