Visual Guide: North Shore Drive

A few days ago my sister and I took a drive out to the North Shore of Oahu and took lots of pictures. We found some really sweet, old Hawaii type buildings. The town of Haleiwa is especially a laid-back, old town. Here are a few places we stopped along the way, enjoy!



Most of the buildings in Haleiwa look like this! So cute.




Aoki's has really great shave ice, so refreshing especially on hot Hawaiian summer days.



This old bank building was turned into a screenprinting shop which I thought was an awesome idea! The building is so unusual and cool.



We stumbled across an old sugar mill site with several buildings that have since been turned into little factories, such as the North Shore Soap Factory. It was inside a huge funnel-shaped building with enormous cogs (gears?) on the outside. Very cool.



This antique store is absolutely filled with kitschy Hawaiian novelties like conch shells, old calendars and aloha shirts.







This used to be an old sugar mill right on the coast, next to Kualoa Ranch.
