The Unique Town In Hawaii That’s Anything But Ordinary

With a fascinating whaling history and thriving tourism industry, there is truly no city in America quite like Lahaina. In fact, Lahaina – which is located on the northwestern coast of Maui – was named “the best city or town in Hawaii” in the HAWAII Magazine’s 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards, and we truly can’t think of a more extraordinary destination.

Lahaina has a resident population of 11,000, though, during tourist season, the population can grow to upwards of 40,000. What makes this town so special? Is it the town’s fascinating history, or perhaps the incredible destinations and attractions within its border? Indeed, these 13 facts, attractions, landmarks, and views, surely make this little seaside town anything but ordinary.
