Months Visited: August
Our family likes to explore new places and see unusual sights, and we have an adventurous spirit that takes us to some remote and unique places. We enjoy activities that are exciting and those that we have not experienced before, but we also like to see the best of nature and relax on the beach or lounge around a pool on some days as well. We like to experience a wide range of stops and activities, and we are all fairly active and in good physical shape. Our children at the time of this itinerary: 3 children-Boy age 18 years, Boy age 13 years, Boy age 11 years.
Description: Hana and the road leading to it contains some of the most beautiful scenery in Hawaii. Waterfalls, scenic ocean views, lush tropical rainforest areas, and many other sights make this area one of the most popular tourist spots in Maui, Hawaii. There are many hiking trails that lead off the road, and a number of waterfalls within a short distance. The town of Hana is still unspoiled, and the pools of O’heo provide a unique spot to visit. The double waterfall is a great place to swim and enjoy the tropical paradise that is Hawaii.
Our Experiences: The town of Hana and the surrounding area offered us some incredible views and experiences. We enjoyed the 7 pools of Hana, and the double waterfall was fun to see and swim in. We spent some time hiking through the rainforest and we visited the black sand beach in the area for a little while as well. The road to Hana and the area around the town was fantastic. This stop is highly recommended and there is something for everyone.
Description: Maui, Hawaii produces some award winning wines, with tropical fruits and exceptional tastes. The pineapple is the star in many wines from Hawaii and a winery tour gives visitors the chance to taste local wines and see how they are made. This can be an interesting and educational opportunity to see some of the local products that the Hawaiian islands offer and learn about the wine making process.
Our Experiences: We enjoyed the tour of the local winery, especially the adults. There were locally produced wines to sample for the grown ups, and the kids thought learning about how wine is made from pineapples was neat. There were more popular stops that the kids enjoyed more but this was a nice change for the adults in our family.
