In a Sept. 18 article entitled "Honolulu Gets Hip," Cary Darling of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in Texas notes that "H-town" is becoming notable for more than just its beaches.

"I love this city!"

Those four simple words wouldn't raise an eyebrow coming from someone in Paris or New York, where thousands of visitors annually swoon along the streets. But Honolulu hasn't always gotten a lot of love as an urban destination. In fact, for many travelers, Honolulu is just a string of tiki-tacky Waikiki tourist traps.

But with a small but growing club and café scene downtown and an infusion of upscale boutique shopping and nightlife amid Waikiki's T-shirt-and-towel sundries, Honolulu is starting to put itself on the hipster map. ...

From trendy restaurants such as the Eurasian-fusion Indigo to the Contemporary Art Museum, dance clubs such as the Living Room (where the cast of Lost sometimes can be found) to local fashions designed by Zana Tsutakawa and brothers John and Gerald Polyasckos, there's almost as much to do indoors these days in Honolulu as outdoors. ...

It's this newfound balance between old and recent attractions, the expected and the unexpected, that's making Honolulu such an undiscovered urban treasure.
