I don't do much fine dining at all, and I'm not sure what kind of $ you're looking at for dinner, here's a few cheaper places that you can get decent food for a reasonable price...Hi all, going to be coming over for 10 days in May and was looking for the low down (truth) on good places to see and or places to avoid.

Except when you are driving to Hana, if you have local traffic on your tail pull off when it's safe and there's enough room for them to pass. I HATE when I get stuck behind extremely slow driving tourists that seem to not care about holding up everyone because they don't have the courtesy to pull offAloha!
Some thoughts from a local Haole.
If you decide to drive the road to Hana check local road conditions at 808-986-1200 (we have had some mud slides in April).
A state park along the road that is worth a stop is Waianapa. Short hike, lava formations, blow holes etc
Another beautiful stop is Keanae peninsula for some photos and snacks at the fruit stand. (avoid Huelo lookout fruit stand - the view isn't that great and they sell mostly smoothies made with Costco fruit)
Remember to take it easy - when you are on Maui you are on island time!
Hi, if it's your first time here you should check out a Luau for one thing. Maui Ocean Center is really cool but around $20 per person if I remember correctly? Snorkeling is free obviously once you buy or rent the snorkel and mask. Atlantis Submarine is kind of cool but probably $100 or more, I haven't been on it in over a decade. Sugar Cane Train would give you a good look at that side of the island and I believe they have a dinner cruise or a buffet afterwards or something to that extent. Hana is a great drive, but as I've mentioned in another post here, let the local traffic pass if you are (and you will be) taking a scenic drive. Driving to Haleakala for sunrise is cool although I hear that people go there for sunsets instead now. Lots to do on vacation but not much to do that is "cheap" unfortunately. Maui is a very expensive place to visit and live. Cheapest options would be snorkeling and hanging out on the beach. And make sure that you put on lotion because we've been having LOTS of 12 UV rating days lately.My wife and I and another couple are coming to hawaii this sept. I saw what you guys posted. We will be staying in Lahaina and would like to know the things to do around that area or not too far from there that are on the less expensive side. plus i hate touristy attraction traps. Think the day drip to Hana sounds nice. I also want to do some spear fishing. My old lady is concerned about sharks in the water. Any help from locals.
