Cute and quirky mountain town! Winding drive up from Kahului leaves you in a boutique lined street with some interesting finds. Hot tip: It's actually COLD up there in the evening shade, so bring a windbreaker at least.

Makawao Town is in the Upcountry of Maui and a destination in itself. It is considered cowboy country. Although we didn't see any cowboys, we saw lots of horse farms outside the town. It is a great place to explore with lots of interesting shops,...More

We didn't originally have Makawao on our Maui itinerary but we met a few locals that lived here and told us that it would be a fun place to check out. We found great causal eateries and fun shops to peruse. Really lovely art galleries....More

We made a side trip on our way back from Hana to visit Makawao as we read it offered locally created art, etc. from the area. Well, that was true but the people were less than welcoming. The only store where we were greeted and...More

This hub of upcountry Maui is reminiscent of the old west – and for good reason. Makawao is an old Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town; the only market left in town is appropriately named the Rodeo General Store. You can pick up a free brochure for...More

Yes Most restaurants and stores and galleries are open seven days a week. It's fun little town. Great Mexican at Polli's. Great drinks and food also at Casa Nova. Enjoy! Maui no Ka Oi Maui is the Best!
