Walkable History: Lahaina

Lahaina is Maui’s big town with a big legacy. It was the center of the Kingdom of Hawaii and the whaling capital of the world.

Today, Lahaina is considered by many to be the center of Maui because of its walkable attractions and amenities. In a short distance, you can walk through historical landmarks and shops that are among the best in Hawaii. Even the humpback whales love to visit now that they are protected.
