July was a blast and August is a celebration!
Here are the Kihei Rent A Car Family birthdays for the month of August!
August 4th – Corky
August 11th – Marc
August 16th – Lynn
August 16th – Sue
On August 3rd the stock car racers were at it again! Those old Nissan Sentras keep on taking a beating and never stop running. The drivers are the same way: never giving up! The Paradise Speedway Park was packed with families coming out to tail gate, barbeque, drink a few beers and watch the non stop action of Maui’s race car drivers slide around the dirt track. Check it out sometime!
Many Maui residents go on vacation during the summer months. But where do folks who live on a destination island go for vacation? This summer one of our Kihei Rent A Car families went to Lake Tahoe. The lake is awesome but it’s the hiking that’s nothing like Maui hiking trails. Also, there are squirrels in Lake Tahoe. Many a Maui child has never seen a squirrel!
Some Mauians don’t go to the circle track races or to the mainland. They love to stay home and enjoy the simple things in life here on our beautiful tropical island.
We love Maui!

LEILANI FARM SANCTUARY MAUI:
Turtles and rabbits live in harmony together.
For those of you who love animals or have children who love animals this activity is for you! KRAC Bookkeeper Jayne and her daughter took a tour at the Leilani Farm Sanctuary in Haiku. They give the sweetest tours on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10am. Go to their website and email them so they know you are coming: http://www.leilanifarmsanctuary.org/ . Leilani Farm is so clean and cared for. It’s located in Haiku so there is a chance of rain. But it’s warm rain 🙂
ENCHANTING FLORAL GARDENS MAUI
Another fun thing to do any season of the year on Maui is the Enchanting Floral Gardens in Kula. This botanical garden is only 35 minutes from Kihei. Find their website at: http://enchantingfloralgardens.com/.
They serve breakfast and lunch and have a little gift shop. Have a bite to eat then wander around the gardens for as longs as you like. It was a really fun Sunday morning thing to do – and we were the only ones there!!
Amazing plants and flowers to see in every hue.
Craines with the cranes.
So, hop in your rental car and go check out some of the activities the Kihei Rent A Car folks like to do.
And please don’t hesitate to call us @ 1-800-251-5288 for directions.
