Summertime is still one of our favorite times of the year, even as we have grown into adults with jobs and responsibilities. Waking up every morning to the scents and sounds of another day in paradise and on weekends and vacation days knowing we have nothing more strenuous to do than a quiet walk along shore’s edge. Living on Maui, we get to experience summer year-round, and when you visit during the solstice, this guide to Maui summer attractions will make your getaway one you will never forget!
When Rain Falls on Paradise
If we didn’t have the rain, we wouldn’t have the lush and verdant landscape that makes our island the paradise it is, but a rainy day can wreak havoc with summer plans. Visiting Hali’imaile Distilling Company, however, can make that rainy day the most memorable of your Maui escape! Located at 883 Hali’imaile Road in Makawao, this sweet spot offers tours and tastes of their extremely delicious vodkas, whiskeys, rums, and gins. Famous for creating a vodka that is made from pineapples, their tours last approximately $45 and cost $10 per person. The best part? Their online store allows you to continue purchasing your favorite beverage even though you may live thousands of miles away; this vacation keeps on giving!
Explore the ‘lao Valley
Historically important and offering dramatic views, the ‘lao Valley is the site of one of the biggest battles won by King Kamehameha, the Battle of Kepaniwai a few centuries ago. Easily reached by car, a hike along the paved path offers opportunities to take some of the most stunning pictures you have ever taken in your life. The mountains, streams, and waterfalls found along the way will be a sight you never want to forget, and the photographs you bring home will help keep the memories alive!
Keeping the History Alive
Our history is very important to us, and if you spend anytime at all with a native Hawaiian, you may find yourself immersed in stories of our past. But if you really want to fall in love with our island nation, watching Ulalena’ at the Maui Theater is the surest way to do so! Hawaii’s story is told through dance and song in a visually stimulating performance that keeps viewers entranced from beginning to end. Located at 878 Front Street in Lahaina, your Maui summer attractions list would be missing something if you skipped this fantastic performance!
