Maui through the eyes of kindergartner

If you’re looking for a place to vacation with your kindergartner, Maui may not be the first destination that comes to mind. But this Hawaiian island has a lot to offer your average six-year-old.

Here are a few snapshots from our recent visit. Look for detailed coverage on National Geographic Traveler’s Intelligent Travel blog soon.)

The above photo is my son, Iden, with Cavalier and his trainer, Amy. We did a one-hour riding lesson at Piiholo Ranch, in Maui’s famous upcountry.

What an amazing experience. Iden couldn’t stop smiling. He loves horses.

The Cowboys, which call themselves Paniolos, were practicing for an upcoming rodeo. You can’t capture the burst of energy coming from these horses on film. You have to see it to understand it.

It’s awesome, whether your six years old — or significantly older.

Our other adventure has been hiking the Twin Falls with Hike Maui. There are four waterfalls, three of which most visitors to this area miss. We hit every one, thanks to our capable guide, Jeremy.

Yes, the falls are really that beautiful.

The water is cold, so swimming in the falls is not for thin-skinned Floridians like us. Still, there was plenty to discover on this three-hour adventure.
