Your Hawaii Military Relocation and Move is only PART of making that transition across the Pacific Ocean. There are many other factors to consider such as local area neighborhoods, schools, commute to your Hawaii Military Base and more. Maybe you want to know a little more on the History of the Hawaiian Islands or Hawaii Points of Interest for things to do. You may also considering Buying a Hawaii Home while you are stationed here on the islands and you need more information.
We'll cover all of this - and more -in YOURMilitary Move to Hawaii series.
Part I- Six Months Prior to "Moving Across the Pacific Ocean"
Across the Pacific Ocean to Paradise.You are moving to a tropical island in the middle of the Pacific. You already know to expect a smaller land area but that means you'll be living in smaller homes with smaller sq/ft. as well. You'll be living on Oahu with its dense communities and neighborhoods that will appear one after another. The island of Oahu IS Honolulu County with a population of almost a million people and you can read more here>> What You Didn't Know About the Hawaiian Islands
Expect a Totally Different Environment!Keep an open mind for an experience unlike any other you will have in your lifetime. With a wide variety of ethnicities and cultures from all over the world, you will certainly get to experience different foods as well as each culture and their way of living all in one place. From Historic Honolulu to Chinatown to the tourist scene in Waikiki you definitely won't be bored!
Weather and Clothing Wear!Tropical island weather means sun, rain, cooler, warmer, tropical breezes and no snow (except during extreme conditions on the top of Mauna Kea on the island of Hawaii (aka Big Island). Wait until you get here to go shopping at the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet where they have t-shirts, swim suits, swim shorts, sarongs, shorts, tank tops and everything you need to start your tropical island ‘wardrobe'.
SCALE DOWN on your Household Goods!If you haven't used it for at least six months and it's doesn't have the sentimental value you used to believe then put aside everything you need to have a garage sale or put in storage. Stuff is just stuff and you WILL NOT be able to fit all that ‘stuff' in a smaller home. Prices of homes go according to interior or land sq/ft regardless if it's a rental or you are going to Buy a Hawaii Home.
Getting Your Pets Ready! Hawaii is a rabies free state and our Quarantine laws are strict. You can avoid putting your pet through a long quarantine if you start the process on immunizations and checkups NOW. You can find more information in the Animal Quarantine's Hawaii Rabies Quarantine Brochure (info about pre and post arrival requirements, quarantine station procedures, policies, rules, operations and fees) and the Checklist for Hawaii Resident Petswill give you a quick look at the things you need to do NOW.
Hawaii Home Buying Means Being Proactive! Start by Searching for Hawaii Homesand take a look around the different neighborhoods and their price ranges.
