While the average age for more Hawaii residents is 51, the average age in the hippie community of Ewa Beach is 31. The residents here love to hang out on the beach and take life at a slower pace. Of course, they must make a living, and to do that, most drive to the east to Honolulu. This rough commute can take up to four long hours on rainy mornings, so hardworking residents expect to start early and end late but consider life on the beach worth the extra hassles.
Shopping in Ewa Beach revolves around the necessities of life. The beautiful Ewa Beach Shopping Center is a favorite stop. A wonderful stop for pet lovers inside this mall is the Pet Depot and The Dirty Dog Garage Self-Serve Dog Wash. No need to take Hawaiian sand into your home with you, when a quick stop at the dog wash will leave your pampered pet absolutely spotless. Allowing friendly pet owners to take even better care of their pets, this fantastic center has Animal House Veterinary Center. While washing your friend, consider leaving your car at Goodyear for a fast lube and some new tires. Alternatively, if you enjoy doing your own work, then check out Napa Auto Parts. Making this your one-stop center, the lovely brown center has a convenient First Hawaiian Bank location. Alternatively, the Laulani Village Shopping Center opened in early 2013. This beautiful large brown and tan shopping center is anchored by a Safeway grocery store, Ross Dress for Less, and City Mill that sells great supplies for all those honey-do projects.
