Quote: Maui truly is the best! I started going to watch Indiana University basketball in 1980. I have now been five times. The 9 hour flight is worth it, and I actually shed a tear upon each takeoff returning home. It has anything anyone could ever want for a vacation spot!

You must eat here! Get a cheeseburger with a slice of fresh pineapple on it! YUM YUM! Pineapple tastes like a totally different food when it is fresh. If you go during whale season, you can look out across the Pacific and see whales breaching as you eat!

Attraction | "Sunrise At Haleakala"

Heaven--literally. You go from sea level and 80 degrees to 10,000 feet on a 30 miles ride up the dormant vocano and 35 degrees (dress warm). You arrive about 15 minutes before sunrise. In total darkness you look out over a dormant island, with only distanct street lights. Then like majic, you see a tiny orange glow on the horizon. It grows into a beautiful huge sun as the beauty of the island is slowly revealed to you. It is magical!
