Lahaina Town



Description:

Welcome to a relaxing, no driving day, exploring historic Lahaina Town, former royal capitol and harbor of the whaling trade. Arrive early for free parking and head for the central Banyan Tree Park (yes, that?s ONE tree!). Stop for breakfast at the Pioneer Inn Grill when you wish, then explore the historic Old Lahaina Prison, Old Lahaina Courthouse and the nearby Baldwin Home Museum. Continue up Front Street, stopping at the exotic Wo Hing Museum, to Longhi?s Restaurant, a Lahaina institution and excellent for lunch or hors d?oeuvres (?pupus? in Hawaiian). Then, keep walking along the seawall until you come to a road that leads to the Mala Boat Ramp. Along the shorefront, you will find the delightful and rarely visited Jodo Mission and the largest Buddha statue outside of Asia! A short walk further and you arrive at the Old Lahaina Luau (reservations required), the most famous show in Hawai`I (dinner included). Friday night is ?art night? in Lahaina, so stroll back down and visit the Wyland Galleries, the Curtis Wilson Cost Gallery and many, many more. Perhaps a nightcap at the Pioneer Inn and off to bed.

Day 1 - Lahaina


Part of any vacation is the opportunity to do and see things which we never could without traveling. This day will be spent in Lahaina, Maui's most historic town and former royal capital, and, very appropriately, without driving. Exploring Lahaina town is a must for Maui first-timers, as combines history, food, art and nightlife in one smallish, very scenic place. Wear comfy shoes and bring beach gear (and, of course, water).
