Haleakala National Park This is where I asked Jessica to marry me. It looks like the surface of mars. I was very nervous and the lack of oxygen due to the elevation didn't help! Jessica is a little snoop so I was certain she could see the ring. The fact that you are reading this means that she said "yes!" The views of Hawaii are magical and there is a "sound of silence" up there that is something I have never experienced. Sorry for the Simon and Garfunkel reference…….some of you will get it! If you want to make it a fun ride rent a convertible. http://www.nps.gov/hale/index.htm
Twin Falls on the Road to Hana This was worth a trip to Maui alone! Swimming in a natural waterfall. We had so much fun that we ended our drive to Hana here. Anyone that knows me or Jessica knows that we go though about a gallon of hand sanitizer a day. I only tell you this so you understand how clean and refreshing swimming here was. We both jumped right in and had the time of our lives. Plus you can pretend you are in the TV show LOST.
The Grand Wailea Luau Ok, I know! This is a corny tourist thing to do, but if you haven't been to Maui before, do it! We had a blast and drank way too much "Tropical drink." It feels like a scene out of Elvis Presley's "Blue Hawaii."
The shops at wailea this is a great shopping plaza walking distance from the grand wailea and also the other hotels on wailea beach. The hotel car service will take you there in a minutes time. they have lots of retail shops, restaurants, and general stores. (louis Vuitton, coffee bean, tiffany co., canyon beachwear, gucci, prada, billabong, abc stores etc…)
Morimoto @ the andaz resort Beachfront dining with sushi & other stylish Japanese creations from Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto. when devin and i got engaged we were staying at the andaz resort. the andaz resort is one of the neighboring hotels of the grand wailea and can be easily reached by taking the hotels free car service. they had the best onion soup i've ever had and the view is incredible! i would also recommend making reservations before hand.
