Ala Moana Center ~ the world's largest outdoor shopping mall, Ala Moana is home to nearly 300 retail stores from high-end luxury brands to department and specialty stores. There are plenty of dining options including an extensive food court, plus an entire floor of restaurants on the center's Ho'okipa Terrace.
Over the years, the Moana hosted more than its share of famous visitors, including a young Duke of Windsor (before he became king and abdicated his throne), Amelia Earhart, and even Frank Sinatra. It also has seen its share of history. The captain and crew of the U.S.S. Arizona hosted a dance there on September 22, 1941, just two months before Pearl Harbor.
