You’ll feel it from the moment of arrival, setting the tone for what’s to come. We invite you to settle in, explore and experience the one-of-a-kind island vibe for yourself. Here are a few of our favorite places to go.

kaimuki

Built on the side of Oahu’s Diamond Head volcanic ridge, quirky Kaimuki is marked by historic hillside homes, indie coffee shops, and specialty boutiques. Eateries such as Town offer delicious farm-to-table fare, while Kaimuki Superette’s menu features specialty salads and sandwiches, and Koko Head Cafe gives comfort food a Hawaiian flare. Check out Juicy Brew for environmentally-sustainable coffees, juices, and vegan treats, or swing by da Shop. for the community’s favorite independent book store.

kapahulu

Small mom-and-pop Hawaiian shops sit nestled between restaurants on the vintage sidewalks of Kapahulu Avenue. After perusing impressive collections of aloha shirts at the antique shops, stop by Diamond Head Grill for delicious island confections, Uncle Bo’s for kalua pork and dumplings, Leonard’s Bakery for a warm malasada pastry, or – if it’s a Saturday – the Waikiki Specialty Farmers’ Market for fresh island produce.

kakaako

The up-and-coming Kakaako art district has been named “Honolulu’s hippest neighborhood”, and an outing there will surely clarify how it earned that title. What used to be an industrial block of abandoned warehouses was transformed by local street artists, using the walls of Kakaako’s buildings as a canvas to create the open-air POW! WOW! Mural Art gallery. Stylish enterprises soon appeared, including the gourmet food stalls, urban retail stores, and juice bars of SALT at Our Kakaako.
