Iao Valley, then head the other way and go to Paia, watch the windsurfers at Ho'okipa Beach or head Up Country for an afternoon trip.

Or...Iao Valley, then the Maui Ocean Center.

Another: Iao Valley, then head sout past Wailea to La Perouse Bay, driving throught the lava fields that are 200 yrs old..beautiful drive.

Besure and take a cooler with you incase you buy some fruit and other yummies.

Unless something has changed, it is the same one.

It is, indeed, the same one. Maui Swap Meet is held at the Community College. I believe the previous post was mostly about the Farmer's Market aspect of the Swap Meet, but there are wonderful crafts as well as plenty of t-shirts and tacky souvenirs. I like to buy fresh flowers for the condo while there; a stalk of white ginger smells particularly wonderful.

If you decide to make the short drive to Iao Valley, a stop at Bailey House Museum is very worthwhile.

I guess some of us are "paper sack" people and others are "Saks 5th Ave." people.

Head up the hill to Kamehameha Schools annual celebration.

Then up to the crater or over to walk around Makawao.
