The island of Oahu, known as "the gathering place" is Hawaii's third largest island. It has a population of over 900,000, which makes up roughly 70% of the state's population. It's climate has minimal variation, fluctuating between 75-80 degrees in the winter and 80-90 degrees in the summer. The Island's biggest city is Honolulu. Honolulu is as close to traditional mainland city life as you will get in Hawaii.
If you ever had the yearning to learn how to surf, then Oahu is meant for you. Oahu is home to Waikiki beach. This is the birthplace of surfing and is still a popular hangout for locals and professional surfers alike. If you move to Oahu there's a good chance you'll be celebrating your 1 year anniversary of living in Hawaii by catching some waves with your surf buddies.
Living in Oahu will help you detox your mind and spirit from the intensity of mainland American life. The island's breathtaking beauty inspires you to unplug from technology and develop a more holistic relationship with nature.
You will find yourself embracing a more sustainable life the longer you live on the island. After all, goods which must be imported from the mainland are often more expensive. Some see this as a negative, but Oahu is no more expensive than a big city like New York City or Miami. The intangible benefits Oahu offers well outweighs the cost.
Adapting a diet revolving around local fruits, vegetables, and seafood is a natural step of truly living the island life. All of your needs can be found at farmer's markets and many dining options are sourced locally.
Are you a history buff or a family member of a World War 2 vet? Oahu is home to Pearl Harbor, which is now home to 5 historic sites educating future generations on Hawaii's unfortunate role in the spark which caused America to enter the war. There are employment opportunities in the historical tourism field since Pearl Harbor is well-frequented by tourists.
Oahu's rich history as the surfing capital of the world and its laid-back atmosphere make it a great place to live for those looking to embrace the island life.
