Why This One Small Town Is Secretly The Best Place In Hawaii

As America’s youngest state, the Hawaiian Islands are full of history, charm, and Aloha, and nowhere is that more evident than in our spectacular small towns. While we love Hawaii’s most charming towns as much as the next person (because really, who could NOT fall in love with Haleiwa, Lahaina, and Hanalei?), there are some insanely cool small towns that remain off the beaten path. Nestled on Maui’s northeastern coast, Wailuku is one of the most underrated towns in Hawaii.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

While many view Wailuku as simply the gateway to the Iao Valley, it is so much more than that, and you should plan your visit today.
