Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Pacific Whale Foundation, Moana Glass by Ryan Staub and Haleakala Crater.

To find ratings, maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Lahaina trip itinerary planning tool.

Des Moines to Lahaina is an approximately 12.5- hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight and car. You'll gain 4 hours traveling from Des Moines to Lahaina due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Des Moines in March: high temperatures in Lahaina hover around 78°F and lows are around 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 20th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Honolulu.
