TOWN TO LIVE, Winner City of Lahaina Website: http://lahaina.com Last year, Lahaina won best place to visit, so I guess what you guys are saying is that it’s just a great place. And we agree. Front Street and the Banyan Tree get all the attention—and deservedly so—but the West side also boasts a ton of cool hidden corners, populated by people with intense pride for their side of the island. The town’s historical significance, both pre- and post-contact is also not to be overlooked. Had Best of Maui been around a few hundred years ago, it’s a safe bet Lahaina—or Lele as it was once known—would have won then, too.
