Honolulu is a beautiful city and a famous area for tourism. The most popular location in Honolulu is Waikiki. There you will find the wonderful beaches, restaurants, and much more. The Ala Moana Mall is a popular mall located right across from the Ala Moana beach park. The mall contains an awesome gallery of shopping stores, restaurants and entertainment. Something I would love to change about Honolulu is the amount of homeless. Many homeless live in the town and it has become very noticeable all around town. In addition, the traffic can be very rough especially during rush hour. Despite the negatives Honolulu is a place where ohana (family) is always first. I love the beautiful island and the countless activities such as: kayaking, hiking, camping, paddle boarding, scuba diving, bowling, ice skating, roller blading, go karting and much more that is available to everyone that is on the island. The greatest of them all is the beautiful view all around. Aloha!

I love Hawaii. I enjoy its diverse scenery. The weather is perfect. Cool temperatures all year round. Cool tradewinds makes you feel comfortable. I enjoy the beachfront acres. They are alive with experiences that will turn into treasured memories. I also love Lu’au’s. They offer tropical drinks and a shower of flowers. I love the traditional arts and crafts. I find myself also taking part in the Hawaiian games, plus hula. I also enjoy the hukilau – pulling giant fishing nets from the sea to the rhythms of a conch shell and island chants. Wow! Great feeling! I encourage everyone from all walks of life to experience the exceptional on the Island of Oahu.
Honolulu is a wonderful city for friendly and social people. Common social activities include hiking, beach activities, eating out at a mom and pop restaurant, visiting indigenous Hawaiian sites, a variety of outdoor sports, annual festivities, and so forth. The options seem almost endless.

There is a warm spirit of "aloha" here, which is a Hawaiian term that represents a multitude of meanings, love being a common definition. The people tend to be friendly and open to light conversation. This is an extension of the local culture.

The main concern to be prepared for when visiting or relocating to Hawaii is that many regions are expensive, in regards to living expenses and real estate. The fact that Hawaii consists of islands makes it difficult to develop more real estate beyond its capabilities. Be mentally prepared to spend more than you're used to for food, necessities, rent, a mortgage, and so forth. Otherwise, you'll find that you'll enjoy your time in the sun here!
