If you are ever lucky enough to find yourself on Maui, with your kiddos and just don’t wanna beach it or waterfall it… I suggest you find your way to the Maui Tropical Plantation.
Nestled on the slopes of the West Maui Mountains, theres a little jewel of a tourist destination as well as enjoyment for local folks.
Actually, its mostly targeted for tourists and theres a bunch of touristy crap that I won’t really get into. But for $2.00 you can feed some crazy ass ducks and your child will absolutely love all 10 minutes of it. Then, at the end of the day, when people ask you what you did, you can say, “I took my child to feed some ducks!” and really feel accomplished.
But here’s a little secret: Theres a bar.
Not just any bar. A farm to table, all natural kind of bar. A top shelf bar. With outdoor seating. So once you take the 10 minutes to feed the ducks, you can lead your child to the outdoor seating where they can continue to enjoy the crazy ass ducks from afar while you order a beverage from the Mill House.
I always get the mai tai which is an off-menu item and absolutely delightful.
Then you can go home, nice and relaxed and when people ask you what you did, you can say, “I took my child to feed some ducks!”
Anyways. Here’s some pictures.
