Where can you catch a flick, grab a bite, get a mani/pedi and load up on organic produce — all in one place? The Maui Mall. In 1970, Maui residents waited eagerly for the three-phase construction to be completed, and at long last, Longs Drugs was the first to open its doors in 1971. Today, Maui Mall is home to an assortment of retail shops, eateries and services, including Whole Foods Market, T.J. Maxx and the twelve-screen Regal Maui Mall Megaplex, Maui’s largest movie theater. Located in the heart of Kahului right across from the harbor and five minutes from the airport, the open-air shopping center is a community hub that routinely hosts live events, including hula shows, Chinese New Year celebrations, and Zumba and yoga classes.

  1. We were sorry to see the Old Whaler’s Grog Shop go away. That was a REAL bar, nothing frou-frou about it, and the naked lady over the bar made it even cooler
