The beach town of Lahaina in western Maui was once the capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, a place where kings were born.Though it transformed into a mostly tourist area in the 1960s, much of Lahaina's history can still be found sprinkled around town – including in the roots of a giant banyan tree.Front Street, which runs along the shoreline, was known as King's Road, where only kings and queens could walk.It's now the town's main thoroughfare, dotted with historical sites – 62 in all around town – as well as shops and restaurants with spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and neighboring islands.At the town center is the Lahaina's famous banyan tree, an 18-meter, multitrunked tree that covers nearly an acre.
