Where’s the best place to pick up those souvenirs you’ve just GOT to take home?

  • For the most fun shopping: lots of small stores on Front Street in Lahaina.
  • For the most choices in one place:  Hilo Hattie (Lahaina & Kihei).
  • For the lowest prices:  Wal-Mart in Kahului.
  • For Hawaiian music CDs, there are some at Hilo Hattie and a much larger selection at Barnes and Noble bookstore in Lahaina.  But the best prices are at Wal-Mart in Kahului.
