Maui is by far one of the world’s top vacation destinations! Whether it’s for a romantic getaway or a family vacation, Maui is full of things to do and see for all ages. It’s easy to sit back, relax, and enjoy the beach and sun on a romantic getaway, but sometimes the vacation itinerary needs a little more detail when the entire family is involved. Rest assured, Maui has plenty of family fun to be had!
The Maui Ocean Center was voted Hawaii’s top-rated family attraction, and certainly lives up to its reputation. As you walk around, you are surrounded by a 750,000 gallon fish tank. The acrylic tunnel lends itself to views of manta rays and sharks swimming all around.
The Lahaina-Kaanapali Railroad lends itself to allowing you to take a ride on a genuine train from the late 1800’s. This Sugar-Cane Train is fun way to take a step back in time and enjoy a little bit of old-school Hawaiian adventure.
The Haleakala Visitor Center boasts their “Junior Rangers” program. Your children (ages 7-12) will absolutely love this experience.
If you have a “hands-on” type of crew, the Hawaii Nature Center has plenty of exhibits that will provide a fun and involved experience for kids of all ages.
Keep it simple, enjoy the beaches, sun, water, and build a sand castle on all of Maui’s beautiful beaches. Attend an authentic Luau, enjoy learning to make Hawaiian Leis, hula lessons, surf lessons, and so much more are offered at many of the Maui resorts that cater special programs for kids of all ages.
So no matter what types of activities end up filling your next Maui vacation, your entire family will surely have an unforgettable experience!
