Maui History Lessons on Your Trip
It is no secret that the island of Maui is a whole lot of fun, with great options for activities and fun things to do, and a beautiful setting for your vacation to take place in. All over the island are great sites to see and wonderful destinations that will bring the island to life. And more often than not, there is a history lesson hidden in your activity, helping to share the long history of the Hawaiian Islands.
The town of Lahaina is ripe with history, as the former capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii, there are must see landmarks all over town. The harbor was the center of the whaling industry for many years, bringing in boats from all over the world, allowing the captain and crew to unwind in town. Landmarks all over the town bring to life the importance of Lahaina to Maui, and the entirety of the Hawaiian Islands.
One of the historic sites that is a must is the Lahaina Theatre, the renowned venue right in the middle of Lahaina that hosts some of the most famous performers from around the world. Taking place at the historic theatre are ongoing shows that visitors and locals go crazy over. One of the top shows in Hawaii is “Ulalena”, which combines incredible live performances, traditional storytelling, and a dazzling display of acrobatics that captivates the audience each and every night. The story that is told is one of high importance to the islands, sharing the various waves of arrivals to the Hawaiian Islands throughout the years, and the discovery, and rediscovery of the island by various explorers and groups, including Captain Cook, and the original Polynesian voyagers.
Rich in history and stories, the town of Lahaina will be a highlight of your trip. The town itself is quaint and charming, and features many great shops and restaurants for you to check out. Front St. is known for its nightlife, and is often recognized as one of the best streets in the county.
