This old Whaler’s Inn and Shopping Arcade is the focal point of the Lahaina Historical District and located on the Wharf at the site of the first lighthouse in the Pacific. Now known as the Pioneer Inn, it is Hawaii’s second oldest hotel and is recognized as a historical site at the Library of Congress. The 115-year old Inn is situated near many attractions including the famous Banyan tree, all recreational marine activities, and the ferries to Lana’i and Moloka’i.
