If you’re looking for a family adventure that includes a bit of learning and a lot of nature, check out the Maunalei Arboretum in Kapalua Resort. We went with a guide who taught us about the native Hawaiian legends and lore that corresponded with various plants and geographic points in view. A highlight for the kids were the hidden natural trampolines (made of roots) under certain types of trees. Our guide also knew where the best rope swings were located throughout our three mile journey. While we were on the trail it rained and the sun came out – so unless you hear otherwise from a local, plan to get a wet and muddy.
