Winter 2015 Issue | Maui, Hawaii

“I went to Maui to stay a week and remained five. I never spent so pleasant a month before, or bade any place goodbye so regretfully. I have not once thought of business, or care or human toil or trouble or sorrow or weariness, and the memory of it will remain with me always.”

– Mark Twain

2015-RTXTraveler-Winter-CoverIn the midst of the long, dark and cold days of winter, thoughts of  a dream vacation to a warm, sunny destination may start to surface. Hawaii is often one of the first destinations that many of us think of when picturing this ideal tropical destination. Picture-perfect beaches, stunning waterfalls, lush rainforests, exotic food and rich culture are just a few reasons Hawaii is the setting for many of our vacation daydreams.

Maui is a clear favorite among visitors to Hawaii, and this issue of RTX Traveler Magazine will show you why. We’ll show you Lahaina, the colorful seaside town where whale watching and other water activities are always at your fingertips. Here, a fascinating history of whaling blends with local art and cuisine. We’ll travel to the Upcountry, where you can stroll through lavender fields or taste some of the state’s favorite ingredients directly from the source. Of course, the famous Haleakala crater is not to be overlooked, warranting at least a day of exploration. We’ll also inspire you to visit Maui’s island neighbors, and will give you a glimpse of the food and art scenes that are so prevalent on the island.

While we think Maui couldn’t be a more perfect vacation for winter – or any time of year – there are plenty of RTX destinations that capture the spirit of many things we love about the island. See what RTX destinations are perfect for a romantic escape, an underwater adventure or a hike with stunning views. Read about our recommendations for other vacation spots in the U.S. that, like Hawaii, feel like another country. Discover where you can go for fields of flowers stunning enough to match those of the lavender fields in Maui’s Upcountry.

We hope that you enjoy this Winter 2015 issue of RTX Traveler Magazine.
