Stretching west from Waikiki, this district, along with Downtown, comprises the bulk of Honolulu's retail and business markets. Ala Moana Beach Park attracts swimmers and picnickers to its lovely setting, while just behind it, Ala Moana Shopping Center is a mecca for shoppers, thanks to its wealth of upscale shops and boutiques. The Downtown area is known for its office towers and historic sites. Aloha Tower Marketplace, set right on the harbor, is a gathering spot day and night, and visitors can tour such well-known locales as Iolani Palace and the Bishop Museum.
