Charles Lindbergh's Grave
Most people don't visit graves when on vacation, but Charles Lindbergh's Grave in Maui may be that one exception. Everyone knows that Charles Lindbergh was the first American aviator who made the first nonstop flight across the Atlantic Ocean. In 1968 he moved to a remote section of Kipahulu in Maui where its beauty and privacy captured his attention. Lindbergh died of cancer in 1975 and his final resting place is under a Java plum tree. A simple granite slab laid upon lava stones marks the grave which you'll find in the yard behind the Palapala Congregational Church. The Palapala Ho'omau Church welcomes all visitors so pack a lunch and read the biblical inscription on the grave's headstone before you leave which reads, "If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea..."
