Mother Daughter Trip To Maui: History, Shopping and Luaus
We decided it was the right time to take a mother daughter trip, so of course the perfect place to do that would be Maui, Hawaii. It was going to be my mother’s first experience in Hawaii so I wanted to make it special. I asked my mom what were the top three things she wanted to do in Maui and her response was go to a fabulous luau, go to some historical sites and explore different areas of Maui.
We were lucky enough to have found the perfect condominium. We stayed in the heart of Maui’s historical Lahaina town at The Outrigger Aina Nalu Resort. This property was great for us, because it had all of the amenities we were looking for including a full kitchen, washer and dryer in unit and nice comfortable beds. The property had cozy garden gazebos, a sleek infinity pool and tranquil water features. It was located near Front Street, which offers great shopping such as Hilo Hattie’s; great restaurants including our favorite Cheeseburger in Paradise, which is right on the beach and multiple art galleries including a favorite: Kimi Werner Art.
Maui also offers great beaches and historical sites that have a lot to explore. We checked out some historical buildings including The Baldwin House, the Courthouse and our favorite The Wo Hing Museum. We also accomplished the famous Road to Hana. This curvy coastal drive with views of cliffs, beaches, waterfalls and miles of rainforest is a great way to explore Mother Nature. One of our best memories would be the Luau at the Royal Lahaina. We enjoyed the Polynesian drums & dancers, the traditional delicacies and the fun atmosphere.
Maui offers so many great activities and places to explore that we couldn’t fit it all in one trip. We had such a great time in Hawaii that we are hoping to revisit soon!
