A bastion of multigenerational families and properties dating back over a century, Kaimuki is one of the most established neighborhoods on the island of Oahu. Filled with airy single family dwellings, this community has a median property size of five thousand square feet; most of the homes that are located in Kaimuki share the hilly street that runs through the neighborhood. All commercial endeavors are kept separated from the residential area, restricted to Kapahula Avenue and Waialae Avenue. This permits the residents of Kaimuki to enjoy a peaceful environment at home as they are able to walk to the commercial district with ease. The main streets of the neighborhood play host to a number of restaurants, ranging in price and ethnicity and number of years in residence. Some of the more popular establishments, such as the Rainbow Drive-Inn, are steeped in local tradition and have been visited by generations of native Hawaiians.
The Market City Shopping Center is home to a number of businesses as are the Avenue Shops at Safeway Center, home to one of the biggest Safeways Hawaii has to offer. Sports enthusiasts can spend time in one of the community parks that feature basketball courts as well as open recreational space. Children in Kaimuki attend elementary school at one of the seven elementary schools in the Kaimuki Complex school system. The children progress on to Jarrett or Washington middle school, and then graduate from Kaimuki High school. Adults who wish to continue their education can attend the Kaimuki Community School.
