    Music for your drive around Maui

    by seamandrew Written Apr 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I suppose this really isn't a cultural tip but I couldn't think of any other place were this might be applicable. However, I think it very important to mention because when you're driving through Maui, the experience is that much better if you have great music playing on the radio. For that, tune your radio to 99.9 FM for today's top pop music. We liked the station very much and we felt it had a good variety of what's in.

    99.9 FM, Maui's best music

  • Be Friendly

    Don't be as aggressive here as you would at home. The people still drive fast & tailgate but they don't cut you off or honk their horns.
    Try to pronounce their words correctly. Everyone is very friendly and helpful.

    The weather on Maui depends...

    The weather on Maui depends more on where you are than on what season is. The average daily temperature along the coast is about 78ºF (25.5ºC) in summer and during the winter it drops to 72ºF (22ºC).
    On Haleakala summit, the average is about 43-50ºF (6-10ºC).Nights are no more than 10 degrees Fahrenheit cooler than days.
