You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lahaina: Wailea Beach (in Wailea), Ho'okipa Beach Park (in Paia) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). Spend the 19th (Tue) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's still lots to do: stroll through Ka'anapali Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, don't miss a visit to Lahaina Banyan Court, and kick back and relax at Napili Beach.
