Keanae Arboretum

This family freebie is about halfway along Maui's Hana Highway--a chance to get out of the car and breathe the oxygen exhaust on a stroll through a forest of tropical trees and flowering shrubbery.

Hang a left not far down the road and roll down to Keanae Village, a sleepy settlement that gets bashed by huge waves. You'll also find some fresh water pools nearby. This place is worth the trip, and not just as a stopover on the way to Hana.
