To celebrate my amazing daughters & their respective graduations -- one from DePaul, one from middle school ;) -- we're taking a 9-day trip to Maui in June. And believe me, this is welcome distraction from our unending snow & cold (20 below zero!) in Chicago this winter!
My unending gratitude to everyone here: I've been pouring over the boards looking for ideas for our trip. Based on info here, we decided to just "do" one island. I've already nabbed a beautiful condo at MKV, reserved a convertible (!) & bought tickets to the Old Lahaina Luau. Trying to decide if we'd rather drive the Road to Hana or take a tour; we'll definitely to drive out to Haleakala and poke around on a different day.
We'd like to snorkel a bit and beach hop, of course. But we are explorers by nature and I come to you asking what else shouldn't be missed? We love a fun beach excursion as much as a day at the museum & though we aren't super outdoors people, a nice hike would be delightful!
We have a stack of guidebooks, but I always end up here.
Thanks so much for whatever suggestions you can offer!
