If you are relocating to HonoluluCounty, Hawaii then you may want to research all the neighborhoods of Oahu to get some ideas for your next place of residence.
Welcome to the tour of the Northern most tip of the island! Laie, Oahu (pronounced La EE eh ...is the town) is a coastal town filled with outdoor activities, country atmosphere and lots of history.
First of all, Laie is one of the largest communities of the Church of the Latter Day Saints with Brigham Young Universityand the oldest Mormon Temple on the island "Laie Hawaii Temple".
The University also owns the Polynesian Cultural Center (a living museum of shows, luau's, dinners and the like) and is located on 42 acres where most of the performers are enrolled as students at the University. The proceeds from the Polynesian Cultural Center shows and gift shops supports the University and scholarships which have given education to thousands of students over many years.
Laie Point (picture above right and to the left at farther view) turned out to be a day for picture perfect moments. I shot the first picture right when a wave was crashing against the backside of the Point and displayed a spray of sea water outlining the fisherman. Wow.
According to legend, this point that extends out into the ocean is called "Laniloa" (La knee Lo Ah) and it was originally a lizard. After Kana (a big legendary warrior) had rescued his mother from Molokai (with the help of his brother) and taken her back to Hawaii he came back to kill all the Mo'o (Giant Lizards) in the islands He eventually got to Laie and killed this giant lizard, chopped off it's head and flung all the pieces intot he ocean. These pieces are supposedly all the five islands lying off shore here at Laie Point. (one to the right and another you can see behind the fisherman above)
Now, with that legend in mind, looking at all the little islands left a mind to wander.
Three years ago we stayed at Laie Inn (next to the Polynesian Cultural Center) for three nights. Sort of like a get away vacation with a McDonald's right next door too!We took our fishing poles and tried to catch a fish for three days! How do these fisherman catch MANY fish and we couldn't catch one? We must be lousy at fishing because we tried to use shrimp, octopus and ahi fish for bait. Oh, well. It was fun for those three days although our busy lives and now a dog would prevent us from "vacationing" on the other side of the island again although we take a ride around to different areas quite often.
In Laie, you can expect a lot of places to be closed on Sunday. This little country town respects Sunday as a "day of rest".
Other than that there is Laie Shopping Center which has the following shops:
Banking: American Savings Bank, Bank of Hawaii, First Hawaiian Bank
U.S. Post Office
Restaurants/Eats!- Laie Chop Suey, L & L Drive In, Pizza Hut, Subway, Taco Bell, Angels Ice Cream
Entertainment:Wallace Theaters, Ohana Videos and Memories (including scrapbooking)
Grocery:Foodland Supermarket (including foods, sundries, gift items, and more!)
Health:D.A. Pharmacy, Dr. Kevin Baize, O.D., Dr. Rhoads Stevens, M.D., Laie Family Dental Care: Dr. Dennis Tiberi, DDS, The Country Doctor, Marc Shlachter, M.D.
Home and Car:Ace Hardware, Matsuda's Auto Parts (NAPA), Mickey's Motors
Personal Needs: Amber Nails, Laie Washerette, The Haircut Store
Truly a sea and country town, Laie proves to have more than just scenery. Plenty of beaches, fishing,hiking, snorkeling and lots of outdoor activities as well as the 42 acre Polynesian Cultural Center . Laie may just be the neighborhood you're looking for if you are just vacationing, relocating to Hawaii with a company, the military or just plain retiring here.
