Visiting Maui

The Hawaiian island of Maui is one of the most sterling tropical getaway destinations in the U.S. With premier attractions, welcoming locals, and a seemingly endless list of events, festivals, and concerts, it’s easy to see why so many vacationers flock to Maui. During the winter and into spring, there’s no lack of excitement on the island – plan your visit today.

Your number one destination within Maui should be Lahaina, which yields unmatched views of the Pacific Ocean, and offers quick access to a host of nearby must-see sites. You might fly into the Lahaina Kapalua Airport, and Downtown Lahaina offers up plenty to see and do for all members of the family. Just to the east of downtown you can check out the Iao Valley State Monument or the Maui Ocean Center. These attractions are excellent at any time of the year, but are particularly vibrant during the fall and winter.
