North Shore is a community on the island of O’ahu, that is situated between Ka’ena Point and Kahuku Point, in Hawaii. Things slow down out here and that's precisely how the locals want to keep it. You'll see this reflected by 1 out of every 5 cars on the North Shore having a green bumper sticker that reads the North Shore's motto, "Keep The Country, Country."
As you start to explore North Shore real estate prices, you'll quickly realize that "country" isn't synonymous with inexpensive like you're used to in the upper 48 states. A slow pace, and space are luxury features on the island of Oahu. The North Shore is one of the few places people can run away from the urban sprawl that Oahu island is starting to experience.
