Last week I took a small break and went to the Pearlridge Center. About a 10-15 minute drive from Waipio Gentry-Waikele it has everything and anything you could possible think of in their Uptown and Downtown Malls.
Picture to the left: Pearlridge Center is the only mall with a monorail to transport customers from Uptown to Downtown malls.
Pearlridge (Shopping) Center is the largest INDOOR shopping mall on Oahu (Honolulu County) and located in Aiea
Both sides have plenty of parking (holidays are the exception) and I decided to park on the upper level. I entered the Downtown Mall of Pearlridge Center through Macy's (third floor) Home Section.
Of course I have my camera in hand! This is just for those times when there is gorgeous mural to take a shot of.
Picture to the left: This palm scene is on the roof in the middle of the escalator/elevator in the middle of Macy's. Surely a nice piece to look at on the ride down!
The indoor mall also attracts the early morning walkers. Those that like the indoor quality (when it's drizzling) and the smooth level surface floors for footing can enjoy the early morning hours to get their morning excercise.
A couple of months ago we went to Hickam Federal Credit Union (Downtown mall) at the other end from Macy's and I was surprised to see just how many people were walking way before the stores opened.
Need to take a rest from your shopping spree? There's plenty of areas to sit and take a load of your weary feet.
After walking around Pearlridge Center and shopping for a bit I really got an appetite.
Especially when I smelled wafting out into the mall from the Downtown Pearlridge Food Court.
With 23 fast food, 14 Restaurants and 19 Specialty Food places to choose from, you definitely won't have a problem finding a place to eat!
I chose Panda Express in the Downtown Pearlridge Mall. Fast, easy and no waiting.
Picture to the left: Yum! Fried rice, sesame sweet sour chicken and Roast Pork on my plate. I also asked for Crispy Gau Gee with Sweet Sour sauce. As usual, I know I won't eat it all (but like a variety) and the leftovers I took home for Gary's dinner :)
So, for all your shopping and dining needs, Pearlridge Center is the place to go for the Leeward, Central and North Shore areas on our island of Oahu in Honolulu County.
