Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lahaina: Wailuku (Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House & Iao Valley), Wailea (Ulua Beach & Wailea Beach) and Kihei (Trinity Episcopal Church by-the-Sea & The Awakening Church). Spend the 2nd (Sun) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, pause for some photo ops at Lahaina Jodo Mission, tour the pleasant surroundings at Napili Beach, and get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center.

To find maps, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Lahaina online tour itinerary planner.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Haleiwa (Pupukea Beach Park, Sunset Beach Park, &more), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's much more to do: appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach.

To see more things to do, maps, photos, and more tourist information, use the Honolulu trip planner.
