Maui and Millennials

 

We get asked all the time, Hey is Maui a good vacation place for our generation?

The answer is absolute OH YEAH!

 

Throughout the last 40 years or so, Maui was basically vacationed by the Snowbirds, Seniors, Golfers, and the younger generations headed over to Honolulu instead. THOSE days are over….The new generation of Millenials are realizing the Island of Maui is the place to go. You might want to know some great examples right?

 

  1. Why stay at a hotel that you have to pay the big bucks and eat every meal out (Resturant FOOD) is pricier, so why not have a complete condo with all your favorite things?  Wifi/Full Kitchens/Pools to BBQ’s

Before you Go

The idea of Packing for vacation to Maui and your Hawaiian dream vacation in advance, seems to drip like molasses on a cold winters night. The last thing people think about is what to prepare and pack while on vacation in Maui. When the time finally does come, it seems like it flew by and now you are left with very little time to think about what to pack, plan, and do.

PACKING FOR MAUI: Create a Packing List

  • Reservation confirmations, tickets, itineraries
  • Passport or Drivers License
  • Wallet & purse (a smaller purse for when walking around at night or in the day that is not too heavy.)
    Medical insurance cards
  • Cash, credit cards, travelers checks
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Camera, film, or, extra space on sim cards, thumb drives etc.
  • Eyeglasses, sunglasses, contacts, cleaning solution

Quick Packing Tip: Don’t over-pack!

Packing for Vacation: Limit shoes and socks. You will mainly be wearing flip flops. If you plan to go hiking, bring 1 pair of good walking shoes.

Packing for Vacation: Outerwear Think tropical. Think summer. Shorts, skirts, t-shirts, tank-tops, light cardigans, dresses. Maybe 1 pair of jeans or slacks and one slightly heavier cardigan style sweater.

Packing for Vacation: Beachwear bathing suits, coveralls, sunglasses, sun hat, sari. swimming trunks & board shorts.

Packing for Vacation: Clothing pack clothes that are versatile and will keep you cool. T-shirts that can double up as a night shirt or a beach cover-up. Outfits that can be dressed up or down.

PACKING FOR MAUI: One week or more prior to arrival:

  • Begin a “DO NOT FORGET TO PACK” list. If traveling with your family or friends it is best to include them on this list.
  • Figure out how you want to get to the airport. Would you rather take an airport transfer to your local airport, drive yourself and pay parking fees, or perhaps have a friend or family member take you?
  • Arrange to stop newspaper and snail mail delivery until your return unless you are planning on a house sitter.
  • Do you have pets?
  • Get travelers checks if you plan on taking them along.
  • Print copies of your reservation(s). It is a good idea to print 3 copies. 1 for your carry-on luggage, one for someone at home, and another in your check-in luggage. Passport, Drivers License, credit cards, traveler’s check receipt(s), airline tickets. It is also a good idea to leave copies of your reservations with a close family friend or relative with the telephone numbers etc.

PACKING FOR MAUI: Up to one week prior to departure:

  • Wash Clothes and make a list of the clothing and accessories you plan to bring. (Hawaii and Maui are very casual. It is a good idea to pack light.)
