Maui Tropical Plantation

Farm in Waikapu

This longstanding tourist attraction is a cross between a farm, a shopping mall and a theme park. The large gift shop stocks art, aloha wear and gift food. Various plantation huts offer everything from chocolate to jewelry to ziplining (hours vary). Kumu Farms adds organic produce and gourmet products, while a historic house contains photographs of old Waikapu Valley.

It’s definitely touristy here, but there’s something for everyone, particularly families, and entrance is free. Just beware the short and pricey tram tour, which mates a preschool ride to adult narration about botany. Check the website for concerts and shows.
