Aloha Tower Marketplace
Billing itself as a festival marketplace, Aloha Tower cozies up to Honolulu Harbor. Along with restaurants and entertainment venues, it has about two-dozen shops and kiosks selling mostly visitor-oriented merchandise, from sunglasses to apparel to souvenir refrigerator magnets. You can also find a nice selection of locally crafted ukuleles at The Hawaiian Ukulele Company, or music CDs if you prefer to just listen. To get there from Waikiki take the E-Transit Bus, which goes along TheBus routes every 15 minutes. www.alohatower.com.
