Originally known as the Gateway to Fort Street the Aloha Tower was constructed in 1926 and was the tallest building in Hawaii Untill the 1950's. Now this ten storey high clock tower is dwarfed by gleaming skyscrapers that seem to be multiplying. The clock face has the word Aloha in capital letters above its dial.

The tower was small but pretty.FREE Elevator to top of 3 floors. View was mainly the harbor with small boats and shipping vessels. Parking VERY EXPENSIVE...cost us $15 for 1/2 an hour. If you can park on street, good, otherwise I would skip this Include something else to do...this is about 10 minutes. Chinatown close by.

The tower was once a very famous place, but is past its glory. That still doesn't detract from the fact that you can take an elevator to the top and take in the views for free. The dinner cruise ship departs from a dock next to the tower. There is a Hooters and a convenience store with the rest taken over by the University. We took the bus there, but there is a small parking lot adjacent.

It was an amazing sight from the top of the tower. You could see for miles and miles. The down side was that there were not any shops open as it was advertised. They closed all the shops and market place and made it into part of the University. Other than that it was a great place to see.

Most of the shops have closed up. Open saw a office (closed for the weekend) and a restaurant (that was open) here...........no shops. You have to go elsewhere if you want to shop.
It has a nice walkway and the Aloha tower is there but not much else.
