Living in Ala Moana

For the younger, upwardly mobile crowd, there is simply nothing like living in the Ala Moana neighborhood. It is a community filled with mostly single people with no children working in the professional sector of Honolulu. The people who live here work hard and play hard whether it’s out on the water or on land with the emphasis of being outside. There is so much to see and do almost right around the corner from anywhere in the neighborhood.

Let’s start with shopping at Ala Moana Center. It has the great shops that everyone loves along with fun restaurants and other things to do there; however, the atmosphere is what sets it apart from a lot of other shopping centers. First of all, it is situated in a really cool neighborhood and faces Ala Moana Park. Next, it’s like being in a tropical oasis because of the fact that it is an outdoor shopping center with beautiful and lush exotic landscaping everywhere to create lots of shade.

Just across the street is the Ala Moana Beach Park where you can participate in the ever popular Ala Moana Lawn Bowls on the greens, do stand-up paddleboard yoga, or simply hang out around the beach. The beach area is one of the best in Honolulu or even Oahu. It has something for everyone no matter the age.

Magic Island is truly a magical place to visit. It is situated on the eastern tip of Ala Moana Park and is the place to go for spectacular sunsets or just to savor the fact that Hawai’i is home. Oh, and Magic Island is also THE place to see the July 4th Fireworks.

Kapiolani Boulevard is one of the main thoroughfares running east to west through Ala Moana and its neighbor, Kakaao. It is also filled with shops and restaurants that make Ala Moana so much fun. One of the most popular restaurants is Bread & Butter. It always receives rave reviews and features breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lunch and dinner menus offer an eclectic mix of Spanish and Japanese cuisine along with amazing classic breakfasts with a twist. It is always a favorite of neighborhood residents.

The Ala Wai Yacht Harbor, on the eastern side of Ala Moana, is Hawaii’s largest boat harbor. It is the finishing port of the TransPac Sailing Race that starts in Los Angeles and finishes at Diamond Head. As the yacht basin for two yacht clubs, Ala Wai is a beautiful place. There is nothing quite like watching the sun set behind a yacht basin. It is truly a spectacular site.

Also on the eastern edge of Ala Moana sits the Hawaii Convention Center. This architectural masterpiece is host to many national, international sales meetings and conferences because of all that Ala Moana has to offer.

There are not a lot of condominiums in this small neighborhood but units in the ones situated in Ala Moana are highly sought after pieces of real estate. Pricewise, buyers can get into the Ala Moana neighborhood starting in the mid-$100s for a studio at the Ala Moana Hotel or a small one-bedroom unit in one of the older condominiums. The units for sale at the Ala Moana Hotel are excellent rental investment opportunities primarily because of their proximity to the beach and Ala Moana Center not to mention other exciting that vacationers want to see within a short drive.

Of course, the closer the location is to the beach the more expensive the real estate is. Living in a condominium like One Ala Moana, Yacht Harbor Towers with expansive views is truly an experience.
