36 Hours in Maui – Hiking, eating, and exploring!

We discovered a few new aspects of Maui on a recent trip to see our friend who hosted us in Wailuku. We found an excellent hiking adventure near her home in East Maui, visited a plantation and farm store (WITH a ZipLine!), ate amazingly yummy pies at Leoda’s and visited the largest banyan tree in Maui located in Lahaina. We went swanky and enjoyed dinner at Nick’s Fishmarket at the Fairmont Kea Lani, which was bonus thanks from a tip from a blogger!

Timeframe- We took this trip to Maui in July 2021 when the island DID NOT need the extra PR!
