Lahaina, Maui, Hawai'i. A small town just minutes drive south of Kapalua on the west coast. Small shops, interesting restaurants, and the biggest Banyan tree in the world at the city square. Used to be the court house. Relax atmosphere where boats of tourist are shuttled from their ship.

4000 feet above sea level you can find Ali Kula Lavender Farm. It is a nice drive along the country like roads. And you can feel the elevation changes where temperature can drop several degrees. If you like flowers and garden, you must take the tour to learn about the different species of lavender.
