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.
Take a break from the city and head to Ho'okipa Beach Park and Zipline. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Wailea Beach and Napili Beach. Take a break from Lahaina with a short trip to Scuba & Snorkeling in Kihei, about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Lahaina Front Street, don't miss a visit to Lahaina Banyan Court, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

Discover how to plan a Lahaina trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.

Charlotte to Lahaina is an approximately 14-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or do a combination of bus, taxi, and flight.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get some cultural insight at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Iolani Palace. Explore hidden gems such as Dolphin & Whale Watching and Lanikai Beach. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, contemplate the long history of Battleship Missouri Memorial, and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.
