Lahaina is Maui's "Jewel in the West". From Hawaii Web (at this link),
Lahaina may, at first glance, seem like just another seashore town. But this lovely and picturesque city is full of life and brimming with history! Day or night, Lahaina is a site not to be missed. Lahaina started as an ancient Hawaiian fishing village. Then westerners and their tall ships began sailing to the islands and Lahaina became a popular town due to it's natural harbor. Several of the buildings and much of the history of the area revolves around those early years of the 1800's.
I found several romance books at the Old Lahaina Book Emporium!
Is it a coincidence that a lingerie store is nearby?
David gives the shaka to the dancing hula lady!
Driving back to Kihei, we spotted the Olowalu Cultural Reserve ....
... with a large collection of petroglyphs.
