There's always something cultural happening in this square. Locals gravitate to this place and best of all, it's shady. After shopping, we always go there to sit a spell. Sometimes there's Hawaiian music and on the weekends crafts are sold. We found out about its history in our Maui Trailblazer guidebook and took a walking tour of the town. Lahaina Harbor is a one minute walk, we like the breakwater and watching kids learn to surf. The ferry for Lanai and Molokai leaves from the harbor as do many snorkeling tourboats and fishing hires. Much activity here and outdoor restaurants. It's a place where we spend th whole day. There's a nice beach with calm water for kids. Next time we'll probably book a room at the Pioneer Inn right on the waterfront.

The Banyan Tree on Front Street in Lahaina, Maui was one of our favorite places to just sit and people watch. This tree starts roughly in the center of the city block, and has branches that fall down to the ground to make new roots that support the very long branches that cover the whole city block! Really something to sit under and feel the breezes of Lahaina after walking through all the shops and art galleries on Front Street.
From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banyan: "Older banyan trees are characterized by their aerial prop roots which grow into thick woody trunks which, with age, can become indistinguishable from the main trunk. Old trees can spread out laterally using these prop roots to cover a wide area. The largest such tree is now found in Kolkata in India. One famous banyan tree was planted in 1873 in Lahaina's Courthouse Square in Hawai'i, and has grown to now cover two-thirds of an acre."
They have an arts and crafts fair under the Banyan tree on the weekend that is wonderful!

If you're in Lahaina make a short walk down the street to see this tree. It actually looks like a bunch of trees but pretty amazing when you realize that the trunks are all part of the same tree! It's the largest banyan tree in the US and over 125 years old. Worth a look-see if you are in the area.
