The island of Maui is amazing! Some people enjoy their Hawaiian vacation by simply relaxing on the beach while sipping a cold beverage, but there are several heart-pumping adventures that await adrenaline junkies on Maui, too. Here are 3 adventures you don’t want to miss when visiting this island paradise.

1. Go Road Trippin’ on the Road to Hana
The Hana Highway (Hwy. 36), which runs along the northeastern coast of Maui, is a thrilling road trip that the whole family can enjoy. Called “The Road to Hana,” this 52-mile coastal highway comprises more than 600 tummy-churning curves. Those who brave the route will be rewarded with dramatic coastal views and plenty of photo opportunities by beautiful waterfalls, lush rainforests, parks and gardens.

Top Travel Tip: Plan at least 3 hours to conquer the Road to Hana and take your time. This adventure is all about the journey and sightseeing along the way!

If you’re California-bound, you’ll eventually want to see its birthplace: San Diego. And once you’ve checked out the famed Southern California city’s star attractions, like the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park and La Jolla Village, you owe it to yourself to step off the well-worn tourist path and discover San Diego’s lesser-known side, where hidden gems await at nearly every turn.

The place to go is San Diego’s North County, the posh and quieter stretch of town about 25 miles north of the city. Just cruise on down Highway 101, the classic stretch of road with an array of laid-back beach towns along the way. READ MORE

Ever fantasize about blasting off on a trip into outer space?

That might work someday soon for those with millions of dollars to burn. But for the vast majority of us who aren’t that lucky, traveling to Newfoundland might be the next best bet. The unique rock formations, stunted trees and brutally harsh offshore winds in this remote Canadian province are so out-of-this-world that they cannot help but lure those with an adventurous bent.
