Swap Meet at Aloha Stadium, just a short drive from Waikiki
Posted by Unknown | Monday, December 9, 2013

The other day I took my brother, who is staying at the Cabana at Waikiki, one of our great Vacation Rental units, to the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet.  It's just a short drive from all of our units, such as the Ilikai Hotel, Ilikai Marina, Ala Moana Hotel, and Discovery Bay.  The entrance fee is $1 per person and parking is free.

There are so many things for sale and the prices are cheaper than in Waikiki.  We compared several items that my brother was interested in.  He bought surf shorts with "Hawaii" embroidered on them for just $10!  Pareos were only $5.  Here's an item we saw but did not buy:

 They are whole little crabs deep fried and seasoned for snacking.  I'm sure they taste delicious but I decided to pass this time.   It's fun to see all the variety of food items.   I did try an ice cold coconut, which the vendor cuts open enough to put a straw in for you to drink the juice.  It was very delicious and refreshing.   Once the juice is gone, the vendor will scoop out the meat for you to eat.

We did just one lap of the outer booths and it took us 3 and a half hours.  I was glad I had on comfortable shoes.  I definitely recommend bringing the whole family since it's an inexpensive activity with good exercise and great prices!
