Thursday's Pro Tip
Not sure where to get on the bus for Thursday's off-site education tours? Ask any hotel staff for directions to the Shuttle Waiting Area.

It's just down the hall from CLCA's Registration Desk (and the site of Wednesday night's Welcome Reception).
Afternoon & Evening
Although there's nothing official on the convention schedule for Thursday afteroon and evening, there's still plenty to do in the nearby Lahaina / Ka’anapali area.

May we suggest a walking tour of the Lahaina Historic District? The district recognizes Lahaina for its well-preserved character as a 19th-century port, and for its social and economic importance in the 19th century as a major whaling center in the Pacific, and as one of the capital cities of the Kingdom of Hawaii.

Bonus: While in Lahaina, explore the Banyan Court Park. The park includes the Old Lahaina Fort, which was originally built in 1831 to protect the town from riotous sailors when Lahaina was used as an anchorage for the North Pacific whaling fleet. It is also the home of the largest Banyan tree in the United States.
