Exploring MAUI, HAWAII in 4 DAYS! A NEW Travel Itinerary Challenge Series

In the third video as part of our Travel Itinerary Challenge series, we explore Maui, Hawaii in 4 days and try our best to eat, see, and do as many things as possible based on a prepared itinerary list! Open this up to learn more and see our itinerary ↓

If this is your first time viewing our videos, welcome and thank you! For some background about this series: in our years traveling together, we found our travel style involves cramming as many things into an itinerary as our body can handle. We plan a rough itinerary or list of things we want to do, see, and eat at our destination.

Below is the original itinerary we set out to complete. In our Itinerary Challenge Series, we will see how close we get to checking off each item on our list.

💻It was helpful to know the status of Parks & Beaches in Hawaii we intended to visit so check out the Hawaii Division of State Parks website (http://dlnr.hawaii.gov/dsp/)

⚠️For the Nakalele Blowhole on the Kahekili Highway please use extreme caution if deciding to gown. Adhere to the guidelines set by the Maui Department of Fire & Public Safety as there have been serious injuries and deaths at the location: (http://mauinow.com/2015/10/27/visitor-airlifted-from-nakalele-blowhole/)

We hope the itinerary lists and tips are helpful!
