Lāhainā's Massive Banyan Tree

Name: The Banyan Tree
What: One of the country's largest banyan trees
Where: In front of the Lāhainā Courthouse, adjacent to Lāhainā Harbor

Cool down in the shade under one of the largest banyan trees in the United States. Imported from India and planted in front of the Lāhainā Courthouse and Lāhainā Harbor on 1873, this sprawling tree along Front Street is the size of an entire city block and stands more than 60-feet high. If you need to cool down a bit, you can walk for two-thirds of an acre under the shadow of its sweeping branches. Many events and art exhibits are held beneath this popular gathering place. At Art in the Park, which takes place every second and fourth weekend of the month, browse for affordable paintings, limited edition prints and a wealth of crafts under the dangling vines and twelve major trunks of this Lāhainā landmark.
