Are you coming to Maui in the next few weeks? Worried about the federal government shut down? The federal shutdown is currently affecting only three sites on Maui as per the Hawaiian Tourism Authority:
- Haleakala National Park
- Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center (in Kihei)
- Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge (near Sugar Beach)
|Unfortunately you won't be able to see Haleakala National Park during the shut-down. If it is an absolute must-do on your Maui bucket list, how about taking a helicopter ride around the volcano?|
All airports are open and fully staffed. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Towers and the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) are continuing to operate at Hawaii's airports, as is essential personnel.
All of the state and County parks, beaches and trails remain open.
It's Maui - I'm sure you will find plenty of things to do. If you haven't found anything on my blog that tweaks your interest (did you really read the entire blog?), how about this list of 101 Things to do on Maui
We really hope our politicians will be able to come to an agreement soon.
