From mouthwatering restaurants to unique farms and even a national park, this incredible day trip stops at eight bucket-list-worthy spots and consists of two hours of drive time

Aloha, my name is Megan, and while I’m not sure I would be considered a local, I did live on the neighboring island of Oahu for seven years and had the pleasure of visiting each of the four main Hawaiian Islands at least once. Maui was my favorite, and while I thoroughly enjoyed driving along the iconic Hana Highway and snorkeling at Molokini Crater, I left my heart on the slopes of Mount Haleakala.
