The earlier name of Maui was ʻIhikapalaumaewa. The Island of Maui is also called the Valley Isle for the large isthmus between its northwestern and southeastern volcanoes and the numerous large valleys carved into both mountains. The island experienced rapid growth through 2007, when Kīhei was one of the most rapidly growing citys in the United States. The island attracted many retirees and many others came to provide services to them and to the rapidly increasing number of tourists. Population growth produced its usual strains, including traffic congestion, housing affordability, and access to water. While in Maui there are plenty of outdoor activities you can do some include Luaus, Whale Watching, Snorkeling, Tours, Helicopters, Horseback Riding, ATV, Dinner cruises, Parasailing, Fishing, Ziplines, Biking, Spas, Miniature golf, and more. Overall Maui was a great place to visit, I hope to see them become more tourist friendly and implement more all inclusive resorts into the islands.
