It's the kick-off to National Park Week! Enjoy free admission to Haleakala National Park today and tomorrow (April 18&19)! Regular admission is $10/car.
What to do on Haleakala? Well, you can drive right up to the summit, park and enjoy the view. Go for a hike, check out the visitor centers, admire sunrise, sunset, or go up after dark to see the stars twinkle (Haleakala is the site of the world's second largest telescope - the largest being on Mauna Kea - it is an amazing place to see the stars! And sadly no, unless you have some really good connections, the telescope is not available for public viewing).
Check the park's website for more ideas!
Keep in mind, there is no food or fuel available within the national park. And at 10,000 ft elevation, it is significantly cooler than at ocean-level. Bring some warm clothes along.
