Lahaina is located 45 minutes from the town of Kahului and more specifically the Kahului Airport which is where the majority of tourists fly into including everyone on a commercial flight. The town of Lahaina used to be known as Lele which translates to "relentless sun". This town has some of the richest histories on the island of Maui and has been transformed into a hotspot for tourism with a hub of commercial activities.
Lahaina got its start as a historic whaling village in the mid-1800s when there was a large whaling boom. At the time there were about 1500 sailors working on as many as 400 ships taking leave in the town. This was the town where the famous Herman Melville liked to reside. You may recognize the name as he was the author of the timeless classic novel Moby Dick which helped to cement the culture of whaling in the mid-1800s into history forever.
Lahaina is on the National Register of Historic Places and there are still some areas where you can take in these first historic days of the town. Front Street is of course the most popular hub for activities and it has been ranked as one of the top 10 "Greatest Streets" by the American Planning Association.

The enormous Banyan tree that lives on Front Street is an iconic Lahaina landmark. This tree began as a small seedling that was planted after being gifted by missionaries traveling from India. It was planted on April 24, 1873, to observe the 50th anniversary of the first American protestant mission in Lahaina. The tree now stands 60 feet tall and branches expand nearly 200 feet across. It is the largest banyan tree in all of Hawaii.
