You'll find just about anything you could possibly want on Kalakakaua Ave in Waikiki. From ABC shops (one on every block it seems) to Billabong, the International Marketplace and Gucci. It's all there.

In case you've never heard of them, the ABC shops are combination souvenir shops / convenience stores. You can get T-shirts, bikinis, shot glasses, tikis, boogie boards, Coca Cola, chips or trail mix. You get the idea. You'll find them everywhere in Hawaii.

A lot of the shops have really neat window displays, like the one shown here. I saw this aquarium from the street and saw people walking inside it and I HAD to go in! There's a hollow walkway that goes right through the aquarium! It's really cool! I forget exacty which store had it. I think it was near the International Marketplace.
