The island of Maui, known as the Valley Isle, is Hawaii's second largest island. Maui is seen as the financial and commercial nexus of the Hawaiian islands, so this island is a great relocation option for those who work in the business or financial district.
Although it is the commercial hub of the island, the atmosphere still very much embraces the island life. There are miles of beaches with some of the best surf on the planet. On any given day you could run into a world class surfer chasing waves and training for the next big competition.
Maui is a great place to live for nature lovers. It is home to some of the most pristine nature reserves in the country. Wai'anapanapa State Park and Haleakala National Park are two of the most popular places to experience the diverse spectrum of the island's plant and wildlife.
Within Halekala National park is the Pipiwai Trail. This hiking trail passes through a bamboo forest and Waimoku fall, two of the biggest natural attractions Hawaii has to offer.
Prices for homes on Maui are reasonable when you factor in its perfect location. A modest family home can be found for between $400,000-$600,000. That's a great price for a piece of the island life.
Maui is also a great place to raise a family. The local economy's backbone is its small businesses. Kids raised on Maui learn the value of supporting one's neighbors through giving them their business. Kids who grow up on Maui are virtually immune to the negative consequences of big-brand consumerism which plagues their mainland peers.
Kids raised on Maui grow up with a holistic harmony with nature that their mainland counterparts don't get. It is so easy for kids to unplug from technology and enjoy the plethora of outdoor activities that Maui has to offer.
The school systems are also great, with Kula elementary school being the highest rated school in the area.
The small-town economic structure blended with the island lifestyle makes Maui a great place to relocate, whether it is to raise a family or to retire.
