Do your shopping at Maui Swap Meet and Art On Market. Old Lahaina Courthouse and Baldwin Home Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture.

There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kamaole Beach Park III, stroll around D.T. Fleming Park, stroll through Makena Beach, and take in the dramatic natural features at Nakalele Blowhole.
