From its origins as a small fishing village, to the royal capital of the Hawaiian kingdom, to a prominent whaling port, Lāhainā town has a long and colorful past. Take a historic walking tour to see and learn about the places and people that shaped Lāhainā. Stroll down Front Street lined with local art galleries, boutique shops, oceanfront dining and entertainment. Cool off in the shade of the immense Banyan tree, filling a full block city block and providing a frequent setting for art and craft fairs as well as community events. Set out from Lāhainā harbor on a fishing excursion, sunset sail, dinner cruise, or whale watching (in season).
