Ward Centers in Honolulu
Ward Centers is one of the great shopping destinations in Honolulu, and contains stores selling everything a tourist could possibly want. Apparel stores sell mostly island and activewear suitable for the tropical climate of Hawaii.
Many gift stores can be found here with local specialty products, such as local books, chocolate and pottery works. The Island Soap and Candle Store was my personal favorite, as I found unique tropical scents here I had not found anywhere else.
It is easy to spend an entire day here; after shopping, you can dine at one of twenty different restaurants in Ward Centers, which provide a more elegant ambience than the fast food options available for shoppers looking for a quick snack, and then catch a movie at Ward Theatre.
Depending on what time of year you visit Honolulu, there is usually some kind of promotion/discount you can take advantage of to save some money on your shopping excursion. Also, besides seasonal events that take place at the center, hula and line dancing classes are offered almost year round!
