Hawaii Attractions - Aloha Stadium
One of Oahu’s most well known attractions has nothing to do with the island’s history or the beach. Located near Pearl Harbor and hosting many events on the island, Aloha Stadium has built quite the reputation as a place to visit, take in a game, or watch a concert. The stadium plays host to the Aloha Stadium Flea Market where you can find great deals on souvenirs and locally grown fruit, and is a great place to spend a morning. Though it may not be the most iconic as the museums of Pearl Harbor or Diamond Head, it will be an attraction to visit during your trip.
Located in Halawa, Aloha Stadium is the largest venue in Hawaii, and is the place to be when a huge musical act comes to town. It has played to host to some of the biggest artist in the world. Throughout the 90’s, the stadium was the site of concerts by Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, and more recently has hosted Elton John, U2, and way back when, Frank Sinatra.
Constructed in the 1970’s and officially opening in 1975, it filled the need for a venue in Hawaii that could draw big acts to the island. In addition to concerts, the stadium is the home to the University of Hawaii football team, the weekly addiction for residents of the island to cheer on their Warriors. Come December, the Aloha Bowl is played at Aloha Stadium, attracting some of the best teams in college football to the island for a highly anticipated bowl game.
Each weekend, the stadium parking lot is transformed into the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet, a gathering place for local vendors to sell a variety of goods at great prices, and a place for visitors a place to find affordable souvenirs. One of the most popular trips to the Swap Meet include a stop at Pearl Harbor before heading over for some great shopping, knocking out two of the island’s top attractions is one shot.
Aloha Stadium is known throughout Hawaii, and is considered a must visit attractions. The stadium is a great place to take in a game or concert and if you visiting during football season, a UH football game is a great way to spend a day, and cheering on the local team is always a blast.
