Aiea and Pearl City

Aiea was named after a small Hawaiian bush. It’s an area that roughly stretches from the Aiea Bay to the mountains in the north, and with Newtown neighborhood to its west. In 1898 the first sugar plantation was opened by Hawaiian Plantation Company. In 1899 BF Dillingham created a railroad company called Oahu Railway and Land Company (OR&L). The 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor had a profound effect in the area, the coastline areas were no longer accessible and the rail closed down. 

Housing developments started after the end of the World War II in the areas that were once occupied by sugar plantations. According to one local news source, Aiea is the only city in the world that’s spelled using only vowels.

To the west of Aiea, along the coast of Pearl Harbor, is Pearl City. In the early days it was occupied by rice paddy fields. It was also the final stop of a railway in the 1880s, which was a horse-powered mud wagon.

Both Aiea and Pearl City offers lots of indoor and outdoor activities that include Pearl Country Club for golfing, Keaiwa Heiau State Recreation Area for outdooring camping and hiking, and various parks such as Pearl City, Waiau, and Pacific Palisades district parks, etc. For shopping, it offers Sam’s Club, Walmart, Home Depot, Pearlridge Center, and Waikele Premium Outlets, etc.
