Voted #60 out of 125 ‘Best Places to Live’ by US News Real Estate Report and #1 ‘Best City in Hawaii’ by Niche.com, most residents are drawn to Honolulu by a desire to adopt the casual Hawaiian lifestyle, improve their health, live in a practically ideal climate, and enjoy the island’s breathtaking natural amenities.

Even though the state of Hawaii is made up of over 100 islands, only seven are inhabited. Honolulu, the state capital, is located on Oahu, the most populated of the seven islands. Oahu gets almost twice as many visitors as the other islands, but in addition to being a major worldwide tourist destination, Honolulu’s deepwater port is the site of Pearl Harbor, a historically strategic Pacific Ocean military base that was bombed by Japanese forces in 1941. The word Honolulu means ‘sheltered harbor’ or ‘calm port.’ Pearl Harbor has regained its reputation as a sheltered harbor, and today is the number one tourist destination in Hawaii.
