Go early in the morning to get good parking and then just walk and window shop or pick a tour at the wharf.. I would not recommend a whale watch but take the ferry and spend the day driving Lanai or a sunset sail on the monohull sailboat, Scotch Mist, They actually put up the sails and sail while serving chocolates and champagne. Fun people.

We visited to have lunch at Paia Fish Market. We also spent some time under the giant banyan tree and wandering Front Street. We read some of the history trail signs to try and understand how this place has evolved. We stopped in to multiple shops, including the brewery, an ice cream shop where we got Dole Whip, the General Store and an ABC Store. It was a hot August day, so we concentrated our meanderings on the shady side of the street. The A/C spilling out of many stores was pleasant, and we probably went into more stores as a result. The parking lot behind Paia Fish Market is a real money maker - $20 each which is more like big-city prices. I would like to spend more time here when it's not quite as hot; perhaps we'll come earlier in the morning next time.

The stores & restaurants are open and when you are inside the shops or close to people, everyone is careful to wear their masks. The restaurants seem full & they are seating about 50% capacity. Some stores close at 8pm, while others are closing at 5pm. It’s a great walk with a gorgeous view of the sea & other islands in the distance. The sunsets are gorgeous and all the shop workers are happy to have visitors & customers. If you want to get away from COVID, Maui is a very safe place. They take precautions & everyone that travels to the island is tested. It was very safe & a wonderful get away! Highly recommend. Steve Concialdi

Great way to explore. Shops to duck into and windows to look in. Art work, tee shirts, food, gifts, shave ice, and a few hustlers trying to sell you some thing you might not want/need. Fabulous places to see photo murals that you might not be able to afford. But still fabulous. Places to grab a cool drink or an ice cream. Guys and gals in glass booths with torches making amazing things out of hot glass. People who will braid your hair into cornrows, or guys interesting carving things out of wood. Great evening walk to watch the sun go down or places to sit and listen to the waves crash on the beach.

Expecting a "town?" What this is is highly commercialized, crowded, and full of tourists. The facade of an old-fashioned laid-back town is deceptive with this many people crowding all the sidewalks and with long lines to get into every restaurant even during off-peak hours. Some of the more interesting places are closed, possibly due to the post pandemic recovery period.

Front street is lined with small little fun shops for visitors. One can find modestly to expensively priced souvenirs, clothing, hats, jewelry, artwork, etc for very age group. Front street has several places to enjoy good food and beverages. A great way to spend a day if it's rainy and windy and one cannot enjoy the beach.

First time visit to Maui on a Cruise, tendered in, and landed at the small harbor of its Capital, Lahaina, which was once a major whaling port. Main reason for coming here was to go on a whale watching trip, which wasn't booked to the afternoon, so we had around 3 hours to kill which gave us plenty of time to have a good look round. Not a big place, with one main thoroughfare, Front Street. We firstly got an old trolley which was running a sort of Hop on- Hop off service, which cost us $20, this did an hour long circular tour of all the main places of interest in town, plus a trip out to the main hotel area of Kaanapali & Kapalua, where the popular shopping area of Whalers Village is situated. We didn't get off here, but believe it to be a really good spot for walking, shopping and dining; some great golf courses there too. Driver gave a good running commentary and this trip certainly gave us a good feel of the place, and some good pointers on where to shop & eat. We enjoyed our visit to the Old Prison (reviewed elsewhere) and especially the Old Courthouse, now a sort of Museum/Gallery & Gift Shop. Banyan Park at the rear of the Courthouse provided plenty of shade on a hot day, full of interest and the ruins of an old fort. We then enjoyed a leisurely stroll along Front St, lot of old buildings, nicely kept and painted in bright colours; some were evidence of the towns whaling heritage. Plenty of places to shop, though not cheap!!, lots of eateries and of course the obligatory shaved ice outlet. Very busy when we were there, touristy, but not tacky. We found the place full of charm, and certainly a lot more appealing than the glitz and hurly burly of Honolulu. If we ever return to Hawaii, Maui would be our main destination...a lovely place

Front Street actually turned out to be even more entertaining than we had imagined. We walked around and visited numerous galleries after dining at Lahaina Grill...never expected we would me seeing Dalis and Rembrandts in a little Maui gallery, but it made for a great evening. Parking is certainly a little bit of a challenge, especially as it gets busy in the evening, but their parking kiosks have an option for you to put your phone number in to get a reminder when your time is expiring and auto-renew your time, so you do not have to worry about ticketing.

Lahaina is a neat town. There are a lot of shops-you can shop for trinkets, jewelry, art, and anything else that you want. There are also a lot of restaurants. We were able to get to Front Street by taking a bus from Whalers Village/Kaanapali Beach. It is easy to do using Google Maps (it will tell you which bus to take, the bus schedule and when to get off). $2 each way.

It's been a while since I've been here and I find its become too commercial for my tastes. Do travelers really want THREE places with $200+ miracle eye cream sellers aggressively selling their product with BS lines about "how beautiful" my skin is. UGH. I like the little boutiques and restaurants. I love the missionary and old town museums. Worth a look but avoid the burning eye cream slingers.
