Of important note, Kihei is also a town of artists. Kihei has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Kihei’s character.
A relatively large number of people in Kihei telecommute to their jobs. Overall, about 8.03% of the workforce works from home. While this may seem like a small number, as a fraction of the total workforce it ranks among the highest in the country.

Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Kihei is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
