Stayed in an AirBnB in the Southside and cannot recommend the area enough! There are a lot of shops and restaurants to walk to. The neighborhood is revitalizing and there are a lot of beautiful homes to look at. Southside Riverfront Park is also gorgeous!...More
We chose this area to stay and we are here for Sunday Pittsburgh game. I was disappointed it was not close to field however perfect for being able to walk to Steelers indoor practice field Saturday morning. We were able to get some autographs after...More

Someone already stated it depends on where you are on the Southside. If you are at Station Square you only need to walk across a bridge and you will be downtown. Station Square is at Smithfield Street. However if you continued East along Carson Street from Smithfield you can go all the way to 28th or 29th street or even another mile or so down the road to Becks Run Road and Paige's Ice Cream Stand. So the further West you are on the Southside, the closer you are to downtown. Realistically you are only a few minutes away with a car.

Turtle spotting/stop between Hilo & Kona... on South side (6 Replies)
If we're driving from Hilo to Kona along the South side of the island what are some good stops?? Anywhere sea turtles can be spotted???

The only place where you will be close to the ocean along the route is Punalu'u. It's the famous black sand beach of the island and home of the turtles. There are not many places to stop at until you reach Captain Cook. I always stop at the Volcano Winery to check out their gift shop. (Their wines are terrible.)
company coming! (4 Replies)
We have friends coming to see a Steeler game this month. They have been here several times, stay in the city and only go to near-by areas; South Side, The Strip, Station Square, downtown. We we are coming from Butler area and are thinking that we'd like to maybe pick them up and take them a little further out of the city for dinner. It couldn't be very far since we would have to pick them up, spend a few hours together, take them back, then get home. Is there a place that someone could...More

I don't want to guess - so what's "not too far". Is it an hour - 60 miles? Two hours? I mean Butler is a ways north (in my mind). Is your starting point Butler or is it downtown? There are some awesome restaurants all around the outskirts of the city - Mt. Lebanon, Bridgeville, others....Need more info.
South Side Snorkeling (10 Replies)
My husband and I are arriving in Maui on Thursday (yeah!). We always stay in the Ka'anapali area and are familiar with snorkeling there, but we would like to do some snorkeling on the south side. Some recommendations are "The Dumps", Five Graves and Maluaka Beach. We will probably only drive there once and would appreciate any thoughts on favorite snorkel spots. We are experienced, though not too daring, snorkelers. Also, is the craft fair by the Banyan Tree still held on Saturdays? ...More

Another option for snorkeling, is at Ulua Beach. Also, the Kamaole Beaches are not bad either, if you go the rock out droppings at either ends of the beaches.
