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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park) and Iao Valley (in Wailuku). Spend the 6th (Sat) exploring the striking scenery along Hana Highway - Road to Hana. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach, race across the water with Kaanapali Ocean Adventures, pause for some serene contemplation at Holy Ghost Mission, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

To see ratings, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Lahaina driving holiday planner.
