Celebration of the Arts – May 9 - 11, 2014

This weekend, May 9 – 11, the Ritz Carlton Kapalua presents an astonishing array of cultural offerings over the course of a storybook weekend entitled "Celebration of the Arts." Perched on a pine tree lined hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean (and neighboring isles of Lanai and Molokai), Celebration of the Arts is an incredible opportunity to delve into multiple aspects of Hawaiian culture. These include visual arts, performance, demonstrations, culinary offerings and of course, all the grandeur the Ritz Carlton has to offer. 

One If By Land, Two If By Sea: Lava

Two Different Tours Show You the Magic of Madame Pele

If you weren’t aware: It’s autumn. And that means activity and adventure leaders around Hawaii are dreaming up new ways to wow you with the geological wonders that span from South Point, Hawaii (Big) Island, to Kalalau, Kauai.

Kualoa Debuts Paniolo-Inspired Country Fair

Rodeos, Cowgirls, Crafts and more

This Saturday, October 2, from 10: 00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the Kualoa Ranch is hosting the first annual Country Fair and Hawaii Women’s Rodeo Association rodeo.

Wild Side Specialty Tours Teams with Wildlife Experts, Employs the Same

There’s plenty of buzz going around about which ocean excursion companies do and don’t practice environmental responsibility. It comes with the turf: Hoards of visitors are good for tour businesses, yet not particularly for the fragile ecosystems they count on for income. Sail Hawaii’s Wildside Tours are an operation one step ahead of the curve in this regard.

Maui's Maunalei Arboretum Invokes Spirit Within

What is spirituality? As with most things in life, it all depends on whom you ask. For some, it's a steady regimen of religious practice; for another, it may be a yoga class and a quiet meditation. For plenty of others, "spirituality" is a hippy-dippy concept they try to avoid in fear of attaching themselves to any movement or affiliation—understandably so.

Wine, Crepes and A Plant Sale
