Maui's largest mall has 75 stores, a movie theater, and a food court. The mall's interesting rooftop, composed of a series of manta ray-like umbrella shades, is easily spotted. Stop at Camellia Seeds for what locals call "crack seed," a snack made from dried fruits, nuts, and lots of sugar. Other stops include mall standards such as Macy's, Pacific Sunwear, and American Eagle Outfitters. www.queenkaahumanucenter.com.
