Top 5 favorite Hawaii towns: HAWAII Magazine Facebook poll results


No. 1


Our Facebook ohana selected Lahaina as their favorite Hawaii town. It’s said that Lahaina enjoyed 25 years as the capitol of the Kingdom of Hawaii, between 1820 and 1845, simply because King Kamehameha III preferred the small town over Oahu’s bustling Honolulu. The monarch knew a great shoreline town when he saw one. Today, Lahaina is less freewheeling and rowdy than it was back then, when it was also the whaling capital of the Pacific. Lahaina now offers an appealing mix of shops, eateries, art galleries and boutiques. Its historic district features glimpses at Lahaina’s plantation era architecture as well and stunning views from Front Street across the Auau Channel to Lanai. During winter months, whale-watching tours set sail from Lahaina Harbor.
