Hawaii Trip Itineraries

Lahaina Town

Destination(s): Maui

Welcome to a relaxing, no driving day, exploring historic Lahaina Town, former royal capitol and harbor of the whaling trade. Arrive early for free parking and head for the central Banyan Tree Park (yes, that?s ONE tree!). Stop for breakfast at the Pioneer Inn Grill when you wish, then explore the historic Old Lahaina Prison, Old Lahaina Courthouse and the nearby Baldwin Home Museum. Continue up Front Street, stopping at the exotic Wo Hing Museum, to Longhi?s Restaurant, a Lahaina institution and excellent for lunch or hors d?oeuvres (?pupus? in Hawaiian). Then, keep walking along the seawall until you come to a road that leads to the Mala Boat Ramp. Along the shorefront, you will find the delightful and rarely visited Jodo Mission and the largest Buddha statue outside of Asia! A short walk further and you arrive at the Old Lahaina Luau (reservations required), the most famous show in Hawai`I (dinner included). Friday night is ?art night? in Lahaina, so stroll back down and visit the Wyland Galleries, the Curtis Wilson Cost Gallery and many, many more. Perhaps a nightcap at the Pioneer Inn and off to bed. read more about Lahaina Town

The Banyan Tree is the virtual center of Lahaina town, where everyone gathers for meetings, craft shows, entertainment, Halloween and much more. Located in Courthouse Square, it was brought to Maui from India and planted to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Lahaina's first Christian mission in 1873. It now measures 50 feet tall and over 200 feet from side to side. Go anytime and spend a while being part of the "ohana" or Lahaina family. read more about Lahaina Banyan Court

Tucked away on the shore, north of Lahaina town, on Ala Moana Street, lies the surprisingly serene Lahaina Jodo Mission and its huge statue of the Amida Buddha, largest outside Asia. Made of copper and bronze, it measures twelve feet high and weighs three and a half tons. This Great Buddha was completed in June, 1968, in commemoration of the centennial of the immigration of the first Japanese to Hawai`i. The Mission's other marvel, the largest temple bell in the state of Hawai`i, is rung eleven times each evening at eight o'clock. read more about Lahaina Jodo Mission
