To learn of Maui’s yesteryear, visit the Whalers Village Museum for a historical account of the whaling industry, the Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum to learn of Maui’s agricultural past, or follow the Lahaina Historic Trail to explore its thriving seaport’s heritage.
Present day Maui reveals its cultural past through a thriving arts scene infused with the life-embracing spirit of aloha. From the events and exhibitions at the Maui Arts and CulturalCenter and the HuiNoeauVisualArtsCenter to Art Night every Friday in Lahaina, Maui continues to pay homage to its rich history. Local artists and artisans are also expanding their influence by creating a wide range of products, from hip fashion to traditional and contemporary crafts.
Ride on a genuine 1890s train, known as the Sugar-Cane Train, on the Lahaina-Kaanapali Railroad. Build a sand castle at one of Maui’s many beautiful beaches. Turn your 7 to 12-year-olds into Junior Rangers at the Haleakala Visitor Center. Get your kids involved in hands-on exhibits at the Hawaii Nature Center in Wailuku.
In a 750,000-gallon water tank, you and your family can walk through an acrylic tunnel to marvel at manta rays and sharks swimming safely overhead. The MauiOceanCenter, voted Hawaii’s top-rated family attraction by Zagat, is just one of the many family-friendly treasures you’ll find on Maui.
There are 14 courses to choose from (several of which are ranked at or near the top of the “world’s best” lists) designed by noted course architects and golfing luminaries such as Arnold Palmer and Ben Crenshaw. The PGA TOUR’s Hyundai Tournament of Champions is held here annually. Golfing in Maui is absolutely memorable--captivating 18-hole masterpieces, with fairways joining ancient lava flows, tees surrounded by palm groves, and greens arched by rainbows formed in the ocean mist. From Kapalua to Wailea, the views are exhilarating.
