You don't have to leave your home to see Maui this way. It's not the same as going but it is better then nothing!

I don't know where your friend is on Maui, but the weather has been gorgeous here in Kihei and the whales are everywhere. It's a nice time of year for folks to visit.

I am not sure where she was staying but she is back home now. Sad for her I am sure. I spent 11 days in Kihei and 2 days in a cottage on the road to Hana last Oct. Sure wish I was on the Island right now. Rain and more rain. Good for the gardens not so great for my attitude Big Grin

I usually go to the Big Island, but I want to try something new next time. What can't be missed on Maui?

I love so many things about Maui that when I go I have to see and do everything even if I have done it many times before. I love Upcountry where you can visit the Alii Kula Lavender Farm, Haleakala and the scenery is worth the drive. I also never miss the road to Hana or the road to Kahakuloa. I love Lahaina for the cute shops and the history. I love Iao Valley a lot too. My daughter likes to snorkel and she says that the snorkeling on Maui is the best. I know that the beaches are beautiful. I have never been to the Big Island so I can't compare. Maui has many old churches and I enjoy looking at them an in them. If you go you have to come back and tell us all about it.

Beth, I split the thread because I think that churches and other historical sites need a thread of their own. I could go on forever on this subject and it seems like you could too! The new thread can be found in the Sightseeing forum over here: http://cubits.org/maui/thread/view/24574/

Hello Patti, I just booked our flight to Hawaii this week, got the special fare that Hawaiian Airlines is offering, $330 from Portland to Honolulu, then the extra Island flight to Hawaii and the taxes bumps it up to $494. We are going in October. The special rate is good until June 11th. Better Hurry and get your tickets Rolling my eyes.

Beth the picture of you surfing with your dog is fabulous! But the Dog just does not have that terrified look in his eyes, Like you might expect Rolling my eyes.

So what are some fun things to do on the big Island? We will rent a car & circle the Island. We'll be visiting friends on both the Kona and Hilo sides and driving completely around the Island. Where all should we stop? We'll be there for 10 days, not including our fly in and fly out days.

Great price Diana! Hurray! I wish I were going in October. We were on Maui last October for 10 days.

I don't know much about the Big Island, only stuff that I have read about it. I have only been to Maui. You will have a really good time because it is HAWAII Big Grin

Nice to hear that I got a good price. I hadn't shopped around at all, just looked for the first time on Sunday night, bookmarked Hawaiian Airlines and went back in on Monday and made the reservation. So I really don't know what the average price is the rest of the year? I noticed all the real deal prices are just to Honolulu. It's that connecting Island flight that they seem to get you on.

I'm sure departure from San Francisco or L.A. would be a better price than Portland too, having more traffic in those airports. Since you live inbetween in Southern Oregon, which airport do you use? I bet San Francisco is just as close for you as Portland? You could probably get some screamin good deals down there.

Hawaiian Airlines is the first one I have used that charges for each and every checked bag. $25 for the first, $35 for the second. Usually airlines give you 2 free checked bags and additional ones they charge for. I don't know if this is a new thing or not? I'm going to see if we can get by with one bag each. If I buy very much over there, I think I'll UPS it back to myself. It would cost less than another checked bag on the return. Or maybe just one checked bag for the two of us.

I wish I could get by with the carry on, but I doubt I could get 12 days worth of clothes into a carry on. Although we will be able to do laundry since we'll be staying with friends. Maybe all I need is flip flops and one pair of tennis shoes, no jackets, just a couple pair of jeans, shorts, swim suit, some tops... it might fit into a carry on. I'll have to do a test pack.

Anybody have any travel tips for Hawaii?

It's all about choices.
Hi Diana...if I can help, let me know... Here on the beautifully wet and luch Hilo side... You CAN drive around the island in one day....but why? There isn't much to do other than learn about coffee, making chocolate, a winery, farmers markets, botanical gardens, ranches to ride horses and round up cattle listening to tales of the old days, see and learn about volcanos and watch molten lava....do a drawing day with live model,..... uh...maybe I forgot something!!!!!

Maui

Maui is truly one of the most spiritual places in the world. I love this Island and I am sure that I am not alone. This is a place for anyone interested in Maui whether you have been, plan to go or just want to see what others are saying about it.
