Living on the outskirts of Honolulu, we don't relish driving into the "traffic jam" of the freeway system, to get to Ala Moana Shopping Mall. Most of the stores that we visit are also here in the Pearlridge Mall, and parking is definitely easier to find. The displays that they come up with in the center of the uptown mall is quite entertaining. There are 2 large food courts (Uptown and Downtown sections), as well as small shops scattered around the mall. Macy's has it's own Gazebo restaurant (3rd floor) that has a nice view of Pearl Harbor, and the meals are reasonably priced. We don't feel as crowded as when we visit Ala Moana.
