Ala Moana Center
The shopping center is home to familiar national and international chains and Hawaii-made businesses, including local boutiques, candy shops, coffee roasteries, clothing stores, and more. There's often free live entertainment—from singing competitions to hula performances and fashion shows—in the central corridor stage. The Ala Moana Center is a stop on the hop-on hop-off Waikiki sightseeing shuttle (on the Pink Line) and many sightseeing tours.

The center is 30 minutes from Central Waikiki on foot along the waterfront over the Kahanamoku Lagoon—a nice walk if you can take it.
