Pearl City Reviews

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!
I enjoy living so close to H1 freeway. Pearl City is very centralized on Oahu. There is great hiking, schools,, and shopping. Best restaurants as well!
