What to Do: “E komo mai” means “welcome” or “come in” in Hawaiian, and if you’re looking for the perfect paradise getaway, you’ll feel right at home in Maui. Set aside a day to follow the legendary Road to Hana along Maui’s northeastern shore. The famous stretch of highway—52 miles between Kahului and Hana—winds past breathtaking beaches, gardens, and rainforests, with plenty of photo ops along the way. Prefer to observe the scenery from above? Take a helicopter tour over west Maui for striking views of hidden waterfalls and dormant volcanoes, or soar above the trees on the Skyline Haleakala zipline tour.
Where to Eat: A trip to Hawaii wouldn’t be complete without a luau, and the Feast at Lele promises both Polynesian fare and an unforgettable performance featuring traditional Samoan, Tahitian, and Hawaiian dances. Up the romance factor with an intimate table for two overlooking the Pacific at Mama’s Fish House. The old Hawaiian decor and lavish flower arrangements set the stage for a memorable meal of fresh, local fish.
