Honolulu Reviews

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!

Honolulu is where I go to school. I love being in the city, especially Honolulu. There's no other city like it. You can meet all kinds of people that live all kinds of lifestyles. There's so many shops that cater to the diversity the Honolulu has to offer. There's something for everyone in Honolulu. The scenery is breathtaking and the weather is great year round even when it is raining! You will feel true happiness when you walk the streets of Honolulu.
Although traffic is a factor in commuting, locals are always driving with aloha watching for pedestrians, etc. There are many activities throughout the day– fun for all ages! Beaches are always packed no matter what, but the water is amazing! The International Marketplace has just opened up not too long ago, but it's an amazing place to shop, dine, entertainment, and to just kick back with family and friends. There are many other places along the Waikiki strip to enjoy. The Honolulu Zoo is also another great place! It's a very diverse area, but also family friendly. You'll love spending time here!
