Laid back Hawaii

Lahaina, HI, United States
0 Kudos
Hawaii is a great place, and being a former California resident it is a short 5.5-hour flight. My favorite island is and remains Maui. To me, Maui is a great combo of just enough to do but not being just like the mainland aka Honolulu. I just don't understand the appeal of Honolulu, but that is a story for a different day. Whale watching, surfing, great beaches, and just relaxing are Maui go to activities. There are some excellent restaurants for the foodies and if you are adventurous there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. Maui is a great place.

You can sample a ton of different blends and beans here. I left jittery but do not regret it. Great coffee!

A must try, personally I think lunch makes more sense as the view is amazing.
