What to Do in Lahaina
Of all the charming and quaint towns in Hawaii, Lahaina is up there as one of the best. Located on Maui’s west side, the town is full of historic landmarks, traditions, and fun. Once the capital city of Hawaii, Lahaina has a rich and storied tradition, dating back for hundreds of years. Many visitors make it a point to spend some quality time in town, looking for great activities, dining, and find the answer to the question: what is there to do in Lahaina?
In the 1800’s, Lahaina was the whaling hub for the Pacific, welcoming ships from around the world to its port, and bringing whalers into town for a break from the ocean, and a good time. Those days are long gone, but Lahaina’s port remains a hub of activity, though whaling ships have turned into cruise ships and locally owned boats that head out to sea for dinner cruises, snorkel adventures, and whale watching.
One of the most visited locations in Lahaina is Front Street, situated as close to the ocean as you can put a street, and lined with locally owned shops, dining, and entertainment venues that visitors use to fill their days. Front Street is the life of the party, and is recognized as one of the best streets in America, with seasonal activities like fireworks for the 4th of July, street fairs, and different activities year round. The harbor near Front Street is where all of the activities in town originate, providing endless fun while visiting Maui.
Often, visitors to Maui are looking for more than the typical activity in Hawaii, seeking something just a little different to enjoy while visiting the islands. Just off of the main strip is the historic Maui Theatre, hosting a variety of entertainment, concerts, and live performances, the most notable being the thrilling evening shows that take place during the week. “Ulalena” is one of the most popular shows in Hawaii, and is one of the hottest tickets in town. Combining live music and dance, traditional storytelling, and high-flying acrobatics, the show is a great option for an evening on the town, usually followed by dinner and cocktails along Front Street.
For sightseeing, Lahaina features the most incredible site of all: the beautiful Pacific Ocean. Take a stroll along Front Street and enjoy the sparkling ocean, head to Lahaina Banyan Court Park to see the oldest Banyan Tree in Hawaii, and just enjoy the spectacular beauty of Maui. The natural beauty of Hawaii is all around, and the charming town of Lahaina provides unbeatable views of everything that Hawaii has to offer.
