Iao Valley State Park in Maui is a beautiful, lush place for a hike, but the land also holds some interesting history. It was in this spot in 1790 that King Kamehameha defeated Maui's army and changed the fate of Hawaii. The win allowed him to move forward with his mission of uniting the Hawaiian islands.
Hali'imaile General Store. Plantation style ambiance surrounded by pineapple fields in Upcountry Maui. Inside, it is elegant and gracious. The menu is American with Asian overtones, the best in Hawaiian regional cuisine. Wine, dine, and linger awhile. The food is fabulous, the staff welcoming. This is Aloha.
