Pearl City Reviews

I think Pearl City is a good community. There are many older folks that live in this area and it's good for those who are retired. Because of that, it is relatively safe and a good place to raise a family. There are parts of pearl city that can be a sketch, but that's like any other community you go into. As for shopping centers and malls, there is a lot of places to go to for clothes (pearl highlands shopping center, TjMaxx, Pearlridge) groceries (foodland, SAMs club, Don Quiote), and even car dealerships. In general, Pearl City is Central between West and East side and is a great community.

I would like to see more community events and also roads fixed. I love that there are schools close by. Pearl City is one of the oldest cities in Hawaii. The population is more towards the elderly.
With construction happening all the time, it is hard on traffic and it is very congested in Pearl City. Some events in Pearl City include Bon Festival and Craft Fairs. I would like to see more offerings on safety directing towards the elderly population such as fall risks and how to prevent it.
All in all, Pearl City has a lot of pride and is a family friendly place to live.
Wonderful place to raise a family. Hard working & honest community. I was born and raised in Pearl City and choose to raise my children here. The public schools are excellent, both staff and classmates provide a positive learning environment for our kids. There is no better place to live. Stores close by, hospital, police, parks, pools. Cost of homes is a bit on the high side, but you get what you pay for!
