Maui Botanical Gardens

There are some days where you sometimes just want to sit back, slow down a little, and take it easy.

They represent a great way to see and learn more about Hawai’i's plant life, and it’s a nice change of pace from being at the beach. Peaceful, pretty, tranquil… a nice way to spend a half-day when you want to slow down for a little while.
