Waikiki Living

If you live in Waikiki, you're in the center of all the action, with late night activities to suit any taste. Some call the area "Vegas on the beach," as there are major hotels set right on the sand along with high end stores just steps away. Here you can shop for anythingfrom Gucci, Prada, YSL, Armani, to Nike, Hawaiian Island Creations, and about 50 ABC stores. Never been in an ABC store? It's like a convenience/tourist/whatever junk they can sell store. You can get anything you need as a tourist, and they are located on virtually every corner. It's common to see a corner in town with 3 ABC stores!

The east end of Waikiki is a beautiful tree-lined area near Kapiolani Park, leading up to Diamond Head Crater. This area is referred to as the "Gold Coast." Multi million dollar oceanfront homes line the coast, and can make you wonder where all these people got their money.
