Lahaina’s Offbeat Charm

Categorized as Maui Vacation Information

Historic whaling village, offbeat charm and Front Street are a few features of Lahaina to which visitors flock when visiting Maui.

The Banyan Tree, Old Jail Gallery and the numerous art studios and galleries will fill your days outside of sun and fun. Photography to take home, art to behold and handcrafted items are all available to browse and for shopping. Even festivals are offbeat cultural adventures, with a memorable Halloween celebration, somewhat reminiscent of a mini Mardi Gras. Other events include artist receptions and boutique gallery temporary exhibit evenings.

Our Lahaina vacation rentals in West Maui guaranty a cultural island experience for every traveler.

While the art galleries in Lahaina are a great way to explore handcrafted items and local artists’ talents, the locale itself is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, so you’ve essentially fallen into a history book if you opt to stay in a vacation rental here. The farmers’ market is open two days a week, ideal for mid-week and weekend shopping. The market includes foods, crafts and local items for both souvenirs or to whip up a gourmet meal for a night in or a picnic on the beach. Open early in the morning till late afternoon, you’ll find plenty to taste and to take home, including the day’s fresh catch and fruits you’ve never seen nor tasted before.

Make the most of your time in Lahaina, with excellent proximity to whale watching, golf, Kaanapali and other towns from one of our Lahaina condos.
