Maui. Everyone knows Maui. Many have sensed the almost audible "ahhh" throughout the cabin as the plane touches down. Collect your bags, get outside, and look left to Haleakala, right to the West Maui range, then up to that blue, blue sky. The weight of the world melts away in the warmth of Maui's sun. The island is just so easy. Whatever hotel brand is nearest your heart, they wouldn't dream of not being here for you. Whatever your oasis Makena, Wailea, Kaanapali, Kapalua each resort has a matched set of championship golf courses, tennis, and spas. If a condo is your preference, there can't be one along the Kihei or Napili shore that doesn't boast the island trinity lanai; ceiling fans; barbeque beside the pool. So check into your home base of choice, take a deep breath, then go. Maui frees you to do what you love to do or try what you've always wanted to. There is an ocean of fun right out the door, a new favorite place to eat, either way, just down the beach.
Maui is full of surprises. Around every bend you'll find a sweet little town or awesome vista to photo-phone home. Don't miss Lahaina, Wailuku, Upcountry Makawao, North Shore Paia and the glorious road to Hana. Do what you please in your own good time. Baby, on Maui, you just hang loose.
