About the Pearl City Area
Aiea Heights, Foster Village, Halawa, Halawa Heights, Newtown, Pacific Palisades, Pearlridge, Royal Summit, Waiau, and Waimalu are the neighborhoods that composed the Pearl City and Aiea area.
Oahu residents have the habit of telling you precisely the area they live in, at the same time, they get very specific when you ask them where they are from. Sometimes, they could just say they are from Pearl City, but they’ll most likely say they live in Hawala Heights, which is more accurate. Since the island is really small, the residents really try to be precise when they talk about direction and locations.
The most leading and popular spot in Pearl City is, of course, Pearl Harbor. This is the famous port, where WWII began for the USA. When you visit this area, you’ll automatically notice the beautiful hillside residence, the Aloha Stadium and the many affordable-looking houses along the freeway. The H-1 cuts right through the middle of Pearl City and just along the freeway, you’ll see the affordable housing area.
Pearl Ridge, Oahu's largest shopping mall, is located in Aiea. It is a huge and amazing mall that you’ll wonder how it was built on this island. Pearl Ridge has just about every store you could ever need and want. There you’ll find all the necessities you’ll need thus, you don’t have to go out of Pearl City that much.
If you’re in into football and concerts, you’ll be able to watch these in the Aloha Stadium, which is situated in Aiea. The stadium is the one and only largest stadium in Oahu.
