Maui, Hawaii

Known as the “Valley Isle,” Maui is dotted with quaint towns, artist communities and local favorites that have been around for generations. Head to Wailuku for pastries from a “mom and pop” bakery, or head to Lahaina for a taste of Maui’s famed farm to table cuisine. From shimmering beaches and sacred Iao Valley to migrating humpback whales and sunset on Haleakala, it’s not surprising Maui was voted the “Best Island” by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler for more than twenty years.

There aren't a whole lot of places in the world you can go and experience all you can on the small island of Maui, Hawaii. What's more, is the fact you can access nearly all of Maui by vehicle. The roads literally skirt the edge of Maui's coastline all the way around, figuratively speaking in a large sideways "8" shape with each circle of the eight a mountainous volcanic land form. Many people famously say, 'Maui no ka oi' which means, 'Maui is the best' - and for good reason.
